    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:  Apartment & Commuter Meal Plans (Fall 2014 & Spring 2015)


    What meal plan can I purchase?

    If you live in The Oaks Apartments or off-campus (commute)…
    Students living in The Oaks Aparments or off-campus (commute) may purchase one of our Apartment & Commuter Meal Plans.  These plans are available in blocks of 60, 40 and 20 meals per semester and include Dining Dollars.  These students are not required to purchase a meal plan.
      When does the meal plan begin?
    Meal Plans start on the first day the residence halls are open for each semester.
      When does the meal plan end?
    Unused Meredith College Meal Plan balances expire on May 1, 2015 and Dining Dollar balances expire on May 1, 2015.
      Is Belk Dining Hall open over breaks?
    Belk Dining Hall is closed for the following breaks: fall break, Thanksgiving weekend, Winter break, spring break and
    Easter weekend.
      If I don’t use my meals each semester, will they roll over?
    If you have an Apartment & Commuter Meal Plan, meals must be used in the semester they’re purchased and cannot be carried over
    to the next semester.  Your balance will reset at the start of each semester according to the meal plan chosen.
      Will my unused Dining Dollars roll over to the next semester?
    Unused Dining Dollars expire on Thursday, May 1, 2015.

    If I purchase a meal plan is it for one semester or the entire year?

    Apartment & Commuter Meal Plans are a semester contract, not an annual contract.  If you wish to participate in a meal plan for both
    the Fall and Spring semesters you must complete an enrollment form for each semester.

      Can I change my meal plan?
    Yes, changes may be made through the 10th day of classes for each semester.  Simply visit the accounting office to change your meal plan during this period (Tuesday, September 3rd for the fall 2014 semester; Friday, January 17th for the spring 2015 semester). 
    Can I cancel my meal plan?
    Meal plans are not refundable.
      Why must I use my CamCard to eat?
    Your CamCard identifies you as a meal plan participant. Without your CamCard, we are unable to access your account to verify
    your membership.
      Who can use my CamCard?
    For your protection, meal plans are non-transferable. The only person authorized to use your CamCard is you.
      What if I lose my CamCard?
    Not to worry. Just report your lost card to the Campus Police Office at (919) 760-8888. Replacement cards may be obtained during regular hours for a nominal fee of $5.00.
      Can I treat a friend by using “two” meals during a meal period?

    If you have an Apartment & Commuter Meal Plan, you may use one of your meals to treat someone else and may use more than one meal per meal period.  If you would like to treat a friend, you may also pay for their meal with Dining Dollars.

      What do I do if my Dining Dollars run low?
    Simple! Just add to your account with cash, check, money order, credit card or charge to your student account. When you want to replenish your Dining Dollars, just go to the Accounting Office in Johnson Hall.

    How do I add additional blocks of 10 meals? 
    Students who have an Apartment & Commuter Meal Plan can add additional blocks of 10 meals.  Fill out a form in either dining location or the Accounting Office.  The charge can be added to your student account.  Blocks of 10 meals may only be purchased after the purchase of an apartment or commuter meal plan within the same semester.
