Meal Plans are the most economical way to eat on campus.

These plans provide all-access, block, or weekly meal options to ensure each student finds the type of plan that works best for them.

All Meal Plans come with Meal Plan Dollars to use for additional purchases beyond a 'meal swipe' or Value Meal purchase.

Meal Plans will be billed to your university bill.

Meal Plan Members will automatically be re-enrolled for the same plan chosen in the fall semester for the spring semester.

Meal Plan Dollars are automatically part of your Meal Plan and can be customized to fit your needs. When signing up for your meal plan you can add up to $200 additional Meal Plan Dollars via Topnet to help with all the 'extras' you may want.

Meal Plan Dollars can be used in all on campus dining locations, including Chili's Grill & Bar.

Any additional Meal Plan Dollars added via Topnet will be added to your university bill.

When using Meal Plan Dollars, you will save 11% on all applicable purchases and save $1.00 off the door price at The Fresh Food Company

 

 


 

 All full-time undergraduate students enrolled in 12 credit hours or more, who do not select a traditional meal plan, will participate in the Flex Plan program.
