Plan Options

A meal plan allots a certain number of meals per week to your card, ranging from 5 to 19 per week, or a block plan, allotting 50 meals per semester. Each meal period (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Late Night at Brandt Student Center Food Court) is considered a "meal." When you enter a dining establishment, your card is swiped and one meal is taken off your card. Meals do not transfer from week to week. One meal swipe may be used per hour. If you would like to purchase a meal plan or if you would like to make a change to the plan you have already selected, please visit 

The below plans and pricing are available for the Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 academic semesters. 

All residential students are required to have a meal plan. Students have the opportunity to select either the 10, 15, or 19 meal plan when living on campus during the housing selection process.

Flex Dollars is a debit account that you have to spend in any location that accepts flex (BSC Food Court, Jazzman's Cafe and HPB Café, and approved off campus vendors). It can be used to purchase additional food or meals, a cup of coffee before class or a sandwich. Flex Dollars expire at the end of each academic year. Additions called Hornet Dollars, can be added at any time at Hornet Central. Hornet Dollars differ from Flex Dollars in that they do not expire at the end of each term. These carry from semester to semester. Running low on Flex/Hornet Dollars? For additional Flex/Hornet Dollar information, go here.
