2017 - 2018 Meal Plans

Dining Pass Tiers

These tiers offer meal plan options with a set number of Dining Passes and Dining Dollars in varying amounts, depending upon how much, what, and where you want to eat.

Dining Passes can be used only for access to Market Central and The Perch at Sutherland or for take-out meals in the Market To-Go area. Each time you enter Market Central and The Perch at Sutherland or use the Market To-Go area for a take-out meal, a Dining Pass will be deducted from your account. Plans within the Dining Pass Tiers allow you to use up to ten (10) Dining Passes in one day provided the meals are for the plan-holder.

If you desire to take friends or family members to dine-in at Market Central and The Perch at Sutherland, you simply use Dining Passes. You may use a maximum of three Dining Passes, one for yourself and two for guests, per meal period.

Only the Dining Dollars segment of the meal plans are acceptable at our other dining facilities on campus. Dining Passes and Dining Dollars are good for the entire semester.  Dining Dollars will roll over fall to spring semester ONLY if the student maintains the same meal plan, remains in the same tier, or selects a larger meal plan. If a student changes their meal plan but drops to a lower tier, their remaining dining dollars will NOT roll over. If a student has dining dollars remaining after the spring semester or summer session, they WILL be forfeited no matter what.  

Refer to Help with Choosing A Meal Plan for a useful guide to determining your meal plan needs. Or, for ultimate flexibility, simply choose a plan in the Ultimate Access Tier and enter Market Central and The Perch at Sutherland as many times as you wish.
