How does the commuter meal plan work?
As a commuter, what are the benefits of purchasing a commuter meal plan?
All purchases made with a meal plan are free of sales tax, unlike cash or credit purchases. This applies to student meal plans only. In addition, all declining balance meal plans include bonus dollars. If you purchase a $400 meal plan, you will receive a 25% bonus - that's an additional $100 for free. Any purchase over $250 receives a 20% bonus; purchases over $50 (up to $250) receive a 10% bonus. Commuter student meal plans are paid using your student ID - eliminating the need to carry cash or use your debit or credit card.
Declining balance dollars will roll over from the fall to the spring semester. However, they will not roll over from academic year to academic year and will expire at the end of the spring semester.
