Meal Plan Components
Teal Meal Icon

Teal Meals: Hawk Meal Plans and Block Plans use Teal Meals for a pre-determined combo meal at specific retail dining locations. See Where Can You Use Your Meal Plan for a list of locations where they may be used.

Dining Hall Meals: Block Plans use these meals at the Dining Halls: Wagoner Hall, The Shore Dining Hall, or Dub's Cafe. (Hawk plans use All Access Meals at these locations.) 

Expiration: There is no time constraint with Teal Meals - use as many as you like! Hawk plans allot Teal Meals on a weekly basis and unused meals expire each week, while Block plans allot Teal Meals on a semester basis and meals expire at the end of the semester.

Adding Food Dollars

Food Dollars may be added to any meal plan at any point during the semester. Add-On Food Dollars are billed to the Student Account. Food Dollars expire each semester. However, unused Food Dollars roll over to the next semester if and only if you purchase a meal plan for that semester. Additionally, rolling occurs from summer to fall and fall to spring ONLY. Unused Food Dollars will be rolled into the following semester’s account after the meal plan change period for that semester. All unused Food Dollars expire at the end of the spring semester.
