Reminder: Meal Plans After May 5th Are Forfeited

Article *
Meal Plan Reminder – Funds remaining after May 5th are forfeited!

The details… Are you on track to use your entire meal plan money on your card? Ask at the register how much is remaining and divide by the number of days remaining in the semester. That is how much you can spend each day and get the most out of your meal plan.

Any money remaining at the end of the spring semester on your meal plan is forfeited.

A continuing balance is maintained in the food service database. You can ask the cashier at any time to tell you how much is remaining on the card.
