Meal Plan Balance Goals 2018-2019

You have made your meal plan selection, now HOW do you go about managing your account so that it lasts throughout the term?
Your goal should be to end up using all of your food dollars each term – with neither a balance to carry forward into the next term or shortage of money to eat with as you make your way through the term.

 

Use the information below as a guideline to optimally utilize your residential meal plan for the term. Remember, when you eat in Valsetz, residents (on residential meal plan #’s 1-5) enjoy up to a 40% discount on prepared food. Purchases at all other campus restaurants charged to meal plan accounts are retail purchases as overhead costs for these restaurants are not included in the room and board fees that residents pay. (Overhead costs for Valsetz Dining Hall only are built into the room and board fees that residents pay). The following chart will give you an idea of amount of money that you can expect to spend during Fall Term based on the meal plan you have chosen. Use the link below to access week-by-week goals.
