First and Second year students must choose a meal plan from the Unlimited, 100 or 75 Block Plans. You must present your student ID to access dining halls each time you enter a dining hall. Meal plans are non-transferable. Please do not lend them to anyone, or borrow one from someone else. A non-refundable fee of $20.00 is charged to replace a lost card.
Meal Plan Cash
The Meal Plan Cash included with each meal plan can be used in any of the dining locations on campus. One Meal Plan Cash dollar is equal to $1 in cash. Meal Plan Cash purchases are exempt from sales tax. Meal Plan Cash is a declining balance account. The amount attached to the meal plan selected is the balance at the beginning of the academic quarter; each purchase is deducted from that account. Meal Plan Cash expires at the end of each quarter and is non-refundable
Flex Dollars may be added to your Pioneer ID card at any time and be used at any dining location on campus. When you use Flex Dollars at dining locations on campus, you will receive a 10% discount and you don’t pay sales tax – a savings of over 18%. Flex Dollars roll over and can be refunded upon graduation or at the end of an academic year. To add Flex Dollars to your card, please visit http://www.du.edu/pioneercard/.
