Using the Mini Meal Plan

Mini Meal Plans can be purchased and used anytime during the eligible year, which starts the Tuesday after spring commencement and ends the Saturday of the following spring commencement. 

All Mini Meal Plans expire at the end of the eligible year. Leftover Dining Dollars from your Mini Meal Plan will not roll over to the following fall.

If you are a student with a residential meal plan who is planning to leave the residence halls you have a one-time option to roll over your leftover meal plan dining dollars to the Mini Meal Plan for the following semester. All you need to do is purchase a Mini Meal Plan before the 10th day of classes of the semester following your departure. Your leftover dollars will automatically roll over and be added to your Mini Meal Plan Dining Dollars.

If you are a sophomore in standing or above, have at least one year of attendance at WSU, and continue living in a residence hall, participating in a meal plan is optional.  You are eligible for the Resident Meal Plan or the Mini Meal Plan Learn more about the benefits of repurchasing a plan.

Unlike our residential dining plan, additional Dining Dollars cannot be added to a Mini Meal Plan. However, Cougs may choose to purchase multiple plans in a year.

Mini Meal Plans are not refundable.
