About Meal Plans
Meal plans are intended for use during the breakfast/lunch or dinner/snack meal zones at the all-you-can-eat, buffet style N-Wing Restaurant.  However, meal plans may also be used to purchase a-la-carte items from other on-campus dining locations using the Meal Exchange Program.  The Meal Exchange Program allows students to supplement a meal or purchase a-la-cart items using the meal equivalency rate.

When a meal plan is purchased, the total number of meals and Dining Dollars are added to your Osprey Card.  When a meal is purchased that is equal to the meal equivalency rate it is deducted from the total number of meals in your meal plan.  If a purchase is greater than the meal equivalency rate, one meal can be deducted and the remaining balance can be paid from Dining Dollars or other payment method.  If the purchase is less than the meal equivalency rate, one meal can be deducted or it can be purchased with Dining Dollars or other payment method.  Other payments include , cash, credit card or debit card, or from funds added to your Opsey Card.  There is no refund or credit for meal deductions that are used to purchase meals less than the meal equivalency rate.

NOTE: Meal deductions can only be used at on-campus dining locations.  Meals at Seaview and Chris Gaupp are purchased online with cash, credit or debit card, dining dollars or from funds added to your Osprey Card.

Meals are served in two time zones:  Breakfast/Lunch and Dinner/Snack.  Each meal served in a zone is assigned a meal equivalency rate.  See below.

Zone 1:  Breakfast/Lunch 6:00am - 3:30pm $6.95
