Frequently Asked Questions

Can I be exempt from a meal plan?

All on-campus students are required to enroll in a meal plan. Exemptions from this policy are granted only for medically documented cases of dietary needs. To engage this process, visit the Student Accessibility Support page and see the links at the bottom of that page. Those forms need to be completed by a medical professional in order for the dietary needs team to consider any case.

Can I change my meal plan after I have already enrolled?

Typically meal plan changes will be accepted for a 2 week grace period when the semester begins, through the campus card office. However, a meal plan change may be made (after that time) if there is a change in housing which could make a different meal plan available or unavailable (i.e. moving in or out of the Village).  When necessary, prorated meal plan charges will be applied to your SAGE account.

If I'm not a Resident Hall Student, where do I buy my meal plan?

If you live off-campus, you can purchase a traditional meal plan through the Campus Card Office.

How can I dine Kosher on campus?

Students electing to eat Kosher have several dining options. Sherman Dining Hall offers a traditional resident dining experience. Kosher diners can select foods from the Kosher meal line and then join their peers in community dining.  Louis’ Deli offers a kosher style Meat Deli option and the HOOT market has a selection of premade sandwiches, salads and snack options (NOSH’nGO) as well as convenience items to be purchased.
