Student Meal Plan

Adding, Transferring, & Carrying Over funds to the following year

 

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
     

 

Carrying Over Student Meal Plan Funds to the Following Year

Each Student Meal Plan has some Carry Over eligibility for your remaining funds at the end of the school year.
 

Carry Over of your 2020-2021 Student Meal Plan Funds 

We have reviewed our meal plan policies in response to the change in university operations for the 2020/2021 school year, and have made the following change: Meal plans will not be subject to the minimum commitment for carry over calculations.

Therefore, based on your account balances on April 28, 2021:

  • Any remaining balance in your Basic account will be eligible for carryover
  • Any remaining balance in your Flex account will be eligible for carryover

PLAN TYPE

ELIGIBLE CARRY OVER AMOUNT

Plus All remaining Basic and Flex Dollars
Full All remaining Basic and Flex Dollars
Light All remaining Basic and Flex Dollars
Minimum All remaining Basic and Flex Dollars

*This change will only be applicable for 2020-2021 Student Meal Plans. Subsequent years will be subject to the minimum commitment for carry over calculations.

 

Carry Over of your 2021-2022 Basic Dollar Funds

Basic funds over the Minimum Commitment of $2,350 are eligible for Carry Over to the following year. The breakdown of Carry Over for each Student Meal Plan is as follows:

 

PLAN TYPE

MAXIMUM BASIC

CARRY OVER AMOUNT

Plus $1,800
Full $1,400
Light $400
Minimum Not eligible for Basic Carry Over

 

RezCarryOver

All carried over funds will be moved into an account called RezCarryOver - this account will appear on your TCard two weeks after the end of the school year.

You do not have to live in Residence the following year to qualify for RezCarryOver - as long as you are still a UTM student, your RezCarryOver funds will be available to you. If you do decide to live in Residence the following year, then you will notice that your RezCarryOver Account will be separate from your new Student Meal Plan Basic and Flex Accounts.

 

RezCarryOver Funds:

  • are not tax exempt
  • can be used at all of the same on-campus and off-campus places as your Student Meal Plan
  • 2018-2019 RezCarryOver will expire in April 2022
  • 2019-2020 RezCarryOver will expire in April 2022
  • 2020-2021 RezCarryOver will expire in April 2022

 

Carry Over of your Flex Funds

All remaining Flex Funds in any of the Student Meal Plans are eligible for Carry Over to the following year.
