Dining Procedures
One of our main goals is to provide a pleasant, clean, comfortable and satisfying dining experience. In order to meet this goal, we ask for your assistance with the following procedures:

  • School policy prohibits the sharing of meal plans. Please respect this policy.
  • When finished dining, please bus your own tables by disposing of all trash and placing used dishes & utensils in dish window.
  • Please refrain from taking food, dishes or utensils from the dining area.
  • Remember that Meal Cards are non-transferable. Meal cards cannot be used by anyone but the purchaser.
  • Guest Meals for use at any dining location
  • Plans stated at number of blocks per semester. These meals do not transfer to the spring semester.
  • Guests meals can be used for yourself or others
  • Additional Block Meals can be added at any time
  • Flex dollars are for dining use only
  • Flex dollars carry over from Fall to Spring semester only if a Spring semester meal plan is purchased. Flex dollars do not carry over from Spring to Fall Meals. Flex are to be used only by the individual who purchased the meal plan.
