Changing Meal Plans

Residence hall and Student Housing Apartment (SHA) students may change their meal plans to better serve their dietary needs and schedule. However, they may only make changes to their meal plan at particular times of the year. Refer to the Student Housing Calendar for meal plan change periods. For specific information about available meal plans, refer to the Dining Plans page.

Changing Meal Plans

Residents may "upgrade" their meal plan (change to a larger meal plan) or "downgrade" their meal plan (change to a smaller meal plan) during the meal plan change period in between each quarter. Residents are not eligible to change their meal plan during any other time. Refer to the Student Housing Calendar to see when meal plan change periods are scheduled.

Students who want to purchase additional meals outside of a meal plan change period should consider purchasing "Meal Blocks" (see below for purchasing information).

Changing Aggie Cash
