  • At the beginning of each semester you must choose a new meal plan, they do not automatically roll over. Because many upperclassmen travel for spring semester, we will not assume that you want a meal plan second semester unless you request one.
  • If you purchased a Fall meal plan please note that this plan will also need to get you through Interim. Many students travel for second semester so we build Fall and Interim plan together.
