Selecting a Meal Plan & Adding Funds

Students living on campus choose a Meal Plan option when they complete their housing contract. Students not living on campus may contact the AppCard Office to add a Meal Plan to their account. Meal Plans will automatically be ready for use at the beginning of each semester for which a student is enrolled. Census Day is the last day to change your meal plan.

  • Add Funds Online: There is a $5.00 minimum to make a deposit online (MasterCard or Visa) and a $0.50 service charge is added.
  • Because Meal Plan funds are non-refundable, we recommend adding additional funds as needed. Students are able to monitor account usage and check daily spending through AppCard Online.

Spending Meal Plan Money


  • Balances on Meal Plans carry over from the Fall to the Spring semester and end on Spring Commencement. Funds not spent by this date are non-refundable.
  • Meal Plans cannot be used off-campus.
  • Students cannot withdraw cash. 


Use Meal Plan funds for any on-campus food purchase. Meal Plans cannot be used off-campus.
