Student Meal Plan

How to add, transfer, or carry over your student meal plan

Carrying Over Student Meal Plan Funds to the Following Year
 

*PLEASE NOTE: We have made udpates to the 2019-2020 Student Meal Plan Carryover policy due to the recent changes on campus. 
 

We have reviewed our meal plan policies in response to the changes in university operations, and we have made the following change:

  • The minimum commitment on Student Meal Plans has been reduced from $2,090.00 to $1,581.00
     


What This Means For You:

      Based on your account balances on April 24, 2020:

  • Basic AccountAny remaining balance in your Basic account over the minimum spending amount of $1,581 will be eligible for carryover
  • Flex Account: Any remaining balance in your Flex and RezCarryover accounts will be eligible for carryover for one more year

 

Maximum Carryover Totals:

  • A Small:$1988.00 + All remaining Flex Dollars
  • A Regular: $2449.00 + All remaining Flex Dollars
  • B Small: $509.00 + All remaining Flex Dollars
  • B Regular: $839.00 + All remaining Flex Dollars

 

All carryover-eligible funds will be transferred to a RezCarryover account, and these funds will be available to you starting May 4, 2020. 

Due to the fact that some students must remain in Residence and are continuing to spend their meal plan funds, further review of these policies will take place after April 24, 2020.

The week of March 23, 2020 we will be emailing all students who moved out of Residence before March 23rd to inform them of their final meal plan balances and subsequent carryover amounts based on the recent meal plan policy changes.

  • For those staying in Residence and continuing to spend meal plan funds, please note the final meal plan balances eligible for carryover will be determined after April 24th
  • For all students in residence, please note that Rez Carryover balances will appear on TCards after May 4th, and further review of our meal plan policies will take place after that time


 


 

Adding Student Meal Plan Funds

If you are running low on funds in your Basic or Flex Account, you can add money throughout the year to ensure that you can keep on using your Student Meal Plan. There is no service fee for adding funds to either account.

To Add Money to your Basic or Flex Account...

  • Visit the Hospitality & Retail Services Office during operating hours - you can add funds by using cash, debit, Visa, MasterCard, or American Express
  • Login into your eaccounts Plan Management System - you can use Visa, VisaDebit, or MasterCard
  • Friends and family can also add funds to your Basic and Flex Accounts by making a Guest Deposit on the eaccounts Plan Management System

Please note: There are no automated Student Meal Plan fund deposit machines on campus. Any fund deposit machines on campus are for deposits that do not relate to your Student Meal Plan.

 




Transferring Student Meal Plan Funds Between Accounts

If you are running low on funds in your Basic Account, but you have funds remaining in your Flex Account, you can transfer some or all of your Flex Account funds to your Basic Account

  • Visit the Hospitality & Retail Services Office during operating hours
  • Due to the tax exempt nature of your Basic Account, Basic Dollars cannot be transferred to your Flex Account
  • Any other Funds (e.g. RezCarryover, Gift Dollars, etc.) cannot be transferred to your Basic or Flex Account
