Dining Plan Changes

Don't worry if you are unsure about which plan is right for you. At the beginning of every semester, you have a window of time to adjust the mix of meals and flexible dollars of your dining plan.

All meal plan changes must take place during the official dining plan change period at the beginning of the fall semester:

  • In the fall 2017 semester, you may increase/decrease your meal plan on or before 5:00 pm, on Friday, September 22, 2017.  

Login to the Dining Portal to make your dining plan changes before the dining plan change deadline.

After the deadline, you are only permitted to make changes to you meal plan due to a leave of absence, withdrawal, academic suspension, or if you are studying abroad.

You may only submit one change request during the dining plan change period. When you make changes, you will be refunded a prorated amount effective as of the next biweekly dining plan period. Changes made before or on the change deadlines will be approved and modified by the start of the third biweekly period.

Graduate students on the community dining plans can switch between the Piper Select and the Tartan Flex plan.
