Using the Mini Meal Plan

Mini Meal Plans can be purchased and used anytime. Mini Meal Plans expire once you’ve owned the plan for at least 12 months, and haven’t spent any dining dollars for 6 months after that. For example, if you purchase a plan in May, 2024 and stop spending dining dollars the following May, 2025, your plan would expire in November, 2025.

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.

Mini Meal Plans are not refundable.
