2013-2014 Meal Plan Options

Many dining options are available to students. Each plan has two components: a meal plan and a flex dollar plan. Meal plans determine the number of meals available for either the week or the semester. A flex plan is like a prepaid debit account that can be used at any of the campus dining facilities.

Maverick AnyTime - Less than $10.20 per DAY for UNLIMITED meals eaten in the dining hall!

Unlimited Dine-In Access / Includes 65 Flex Dollars Per Semester
This ultimate meal plan is the closest thing to having your own kitchen. This plan allows you unlimited access to Carkoski Commons Dining Hall. Stop by at 11:30 for a quick lunch on your way to class, return for a snack mid-afternoon, and stop by again for a soda before dinner begins with this ultra-flexible plan. You can also choose, instead, to put together a sack lunch to bring with you for your day or take a hot meal back to your room.

The $65 per semester in Flex Dollars can be utilized at any dining location on campus at any time of the day. These Dollars carry over from fall semester to spring semester. Flex Dollars not used by the end of spring semester will be forfeited.

Fall: $1,172   Spring: $1,231

Maverick 14 - Less than $4.90 per MEAL!

14 Meals per Week / Includes 150 Flex Dollars Per Semester
The 14 meals per week plan appeals to students who may only eat two meals each day and want to snack, or to those who want to eat all of their meals during the week. This plan ensures that you have meals available to you in Carkoski Commons dining hall every week of the semester. One meal may be used during each of the three meal periods-breakfast, lunch (or brunch on weekends), and dinner. Sack lunches and hot take-out meals are available on this plan as well.

The $150 per semester in Flex Dollars included with this plan can be utilized at any dining location on campus at any time of the day. These Dollars carry over from fall semester to spring semester. Flex Dollars not used by the end of spring semester will be forfeited.

Fall: $1,215   Spring: $1,271

Maverick 160 - Less than $7.00 per MEAL!

160 Meals per Semester / Convert Meals to Flex Dollars
This plan offers the ultimate flexibility to customize your meal plan. Start out with an allotment of meals for the semester, then eat as many (or as few) meals each week as you would like-up to 160 meals for the entire semester. Plus, add the unique ability to convert any of the 160 meals a semester into flex dollars at a rate of $5.25 per meal, twice a semester (by November 30 for fall semester and April 30 for spring semester). With this plan, you can determine whether you want more traditional meals in Carkoski Commons dining hall or greater flexibility with Flex Dollars to be used at any dining venue on campus-and even shift back and forth between the two. Also available is the ability to take a sack lunch or hot meal out of the dining hall. Semesters are approximately 16 weeks long, resulting in an average of 10 meals per week.

Your converted Flex Dollars can be utilized at any dining location on campus at any time of the day. Converted Flex Dollars not used by the end of EACH SEMESTER will be forfeited.

Fall: $1,115   Spring: $1,115
