DINING PLAN EXEMPTIONS & CANCELLATIONS

Having a meal plan is a requirement of staying in campus housing.  In rare cases, students need to have their meal plan adjusted.  Following is the three primary reasons for appealing your meal plan:

SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS

These are certain substantiated medical conditions and/or specialized nutritional needs. Additional information may be needed including documentation from an authorized medical professional.  Dining Services does not consider vegetarianism and veganism acceptable reasons for dining plan cancellation.

RELIGIOUS CONVICTION

In these cases Dining Services may not be suitable for students whose religious beliefs dictate significant dietary restrictions.

FINANCIAL NEED

In the case of financial hardship the appeal committee will review your case with financial aid and the bursar’s office in order to best understand the scope of the financial hardship.
