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 at the end of the eligible year 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 after the school year ends, you can roll over your leftover meal plan dollars to the Mini Meal Plan for the next year. All you need to do is purchase a Mini Meal Plan before the 10th day of classes this fall. Your leftover dollars will automatically roll over and be added to your Mini Meal Plan Dining Dollars.

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.
