How do I change my dining plan?

A dining plan is given to both resident and commuter students so they are able to eat on campus. The dining plan may have a ClipperCash account which students can use for activities and services on and off campus without having to carry cash. The dining plan also has a dining dollar account for food on campus. Our goal is to integrate both commuting and resident students so both groups are able to experience a full college life. 

What if I do not want the plan?

All resident students are required to have a dining plan, it is a mandatory part of your housing contract. If you have a dietary restriction and are unable to eat on campus, please contact ClipperCard and we will work together with food services to find the best solution to fit your needs.

Full-Time Day Commuters are not Required to Have a Meal Plan this Semester

The Commuter Block Plan is usually mandatory for all first year full-time commuter students, but because of the uncertain circumstances with Covid-19, commuters do not need to have a plan.

Waive the Commuter Dining Plan

Log on to your Navigator account; under the campus finance section, choose waive commuter plan, then check the box to opt-out of the plan. 

The deadline for the Fall 2020 semester is Friday, September 25th, 2020 at 3 pm. After the deadline has passed you are required to keep the plan.

Changing your Dining Plan
