How to Budget Your Meal Points

To help students track and budget their meal points, Housing & Residence Life and Dining Services have created a chart listing suggested meal point balances per week throughout the duration of a semester. Please note that students can always check the remaining balance of their meal plan for each respective semester at the cash register or by logging into WaveNet > ID Card Services.  

2023-2024 Academic Year Rates

Students who enroll in an academic year meal plan will receive a meal plan for both fall and spring semesters (i.e., students who enroll in Meal Plan E will receive a Meal Plan E for the fall semester and will be automatically re-enrolled in another Meal Plan E for the spring semester). Meal plan increases are welcome at any point in the academic year. However, the deadline to reduce or cancel a meal plan (if eligible) is the University-wide Add/Drop deadline for each respective semester. 

Please take note that all meal points expire at the end of the academic year and are non-refundable.
