Meal Plan Policies and Terms

Residents at UAFS are required to purchase a meal plan. Whether you live in the Lion's Den or at Sebastian Commons, a meal plan is available to fit your lifestyle. Meal plans are per semester, and are billed accordingly. During the period between the fall and spring semesters, students may adjust their meal plans, to obtain a meal plan option that best suits their needs. During the first week of the semester, meal plans may be adjusted to a plan which contains equal or more Dining Dollars. Meal plans will not be billed to a student's account until the Housing Office receives a signed housing contract. Students moving in later in the semester may receive a pro-rated "meals per week" plan but the block plans may not be prorated.
