Dining Plan Changes-Dining Services - Carnegie Mellon University

Traditional Dining Plans

At the beginning of every semester, you can change the mix of meals and flexible dollars within your selected color plan. You can also increase your dining plan to a higher level if you find that you are eating more than you had anticipated.

If You Change your Mind ...

All meal plan changes must take place during the official dining plan change period at the beginning of every semester. Dining plan change requests may only be submitted during the first nine days of classes and will be approved and modified by the start of the third bi-weekly period. For the fall semester, students may change to other options within their plan level or increase/decrease their plan. In the spring semester, students may change to other options within their plan level or increase their dining plan to a higher level (students cannot decrease their plan in the spring semester).

Community Dining Plans

Graduate students on the community dining plans can switch between the Piper Select and the Tartan Flex plan. Students can deposit DineXtra into their accounts at any point during the semester by completing another Dining Plan Agreement [pdf].
