Meal Plan Options

We offer a Freedom Pass, Meals-per-Week, Meals-per-Semester, Athletic and Commuter/Apartment plans. All plans except for the Commuter/Apartment have a Meals Component that can be used in three ways:

  • For dining hall meals (one swipe=all you can eat)
  • For meals at retail dining locations (restaurants, cafes, etc.)  through our meal credit program
  • For dining hall take out, via the meal credit program

Your Meals Component is supplemented by Dining Dollars. Choose from 100, 200 or 300 per semester*. These dollars roll over from year to year and can be refunded when you graduate or withdraw from the university.

Plans are billed through the cashier’s office each semester.  While Dining Dollars roll over, meals do not.  Keep this in mind as you select your plan, and monitor your usage through the semester to ensure you have the right plan for you.  Make changes for the fall semester by September 30 and Spring semester by January 31.

Effective Jan 1, 2014, meal plans and campus food transactions will be subject to N.C. Sales Tax as a direct result of legislature enacted this summer.  Sales tax for Meal Plans will now appear on your cashiers office bill as a new item.  For the meal plans that now have tax added via the Cashier’s Office, you will not be charged tax when you make food purchases using your meal plan.
