Meal Plans

The college meal plan provides convenient, worry-free dining at a variety of facilities located on campus. With a plan, meals are prepaid, so students don't have to worry about having cash on hand. Students simply use their CatCard at any of the campus dining facilities to purchase a meal. Students can easily check the balance on their CatCard using online resources. First-year students are required to participate in a full meal plan for the entire year. Meal plans are not transferable.
