Meal Plan Costs

All resident students are required to purchase a meal plan, and room and board are assessed as one charge.  Day students may purchase meals directly from Dining Services, as there are no meal plans offered through Student Accounts for commuters.

Students may choose from 3 meal plans and may change plans up until the last drop/add day for the Semester. Meal plans may not be changed after that for the current Semester.

We are working on revised instructions for changing your plan. Thank you for your patience.

Basic Meal Plan provides open dining service at Gladfelter along with $25 flexible spending dollars for use at Gladfelter, the Owls’ Nest Café, and Cowpie and $15 flex dollars for use at Sage Café. The Plus and Premium meal plans add additional flex spending dollars as described below. Rates listed are for the 19-20 Academic Year.

PER SEMESTER CHARGES for Room&Board:

  • Double Room with BASIC meal plan - Open plan with $25 flexible + $15 Sage Café declining balance per semester = $5,650 
  • Double Room with PLUS meal plan - Open plan with $100 flexible + $30 Sage Café declining balance per semester = $5,740

The State of North Carolina imposes sales tax on meals sold to students at colleges and universities located in the state. As a result, student accounts are charged sales tax on the meal plans.
