All on-campus residents and full-time freshmen commuter students are required to have a meal plan.
On-campus residents are enrolled in a full meal plan, which is included in Room and Board charges. Commuter students are enrolled in a commuter-level plan per semester.
Participation in our meal plan program through the meal card system allows you the freedom to purchase what you want, when you want it and where you want it with no restrictions. The meal plan program is a user-friendly declining balance system of purchases and transactions that provides ease of use and ease of mind.
You can always check your balance on receipts received at participating eateries, or through a request to our Office of Business Services.
Meal Plan Benefits
- Meal plans can be used throughout the school year, from the first day of the fall semester to the end of the spring semester.
- Unused funds at the end of the fall semester roll forward for use in the spring term.
- You don’t pay New York State tax on meal plan purchases made on-campus, saving you money!
- If you run out of points on your meal card, no problem! You may add points by purchasing a special add-on meal plan, and you will earn Bonus Bucks, which can be used at any on-campus eatery.
Adding Meal Plan Funds
You can purchase meal plan points in increments of $50 through our online payment portal. If you wish to add points using check or cash, please visit Student Financial Services.
You are welcome to select from any of the higher optional meal plans. Students may be able to use financial aid funds in excess of standard charges to pay for meal plan upgrades. Please speak with your Student Financial Services counselor to learn more.
