Who is required to purchase a Meal Plan?
All first year residence hall students are required to purchase either the All-Access or 14 meal plan for the fall semester. All other residence hall students must select from either the All-Access, 14, 10 or 7 meal plans. All students not residing in a residence hall may select any meal plan option.

How does the Meal Plan work (All-Access, 14, 10 and 7 plans)?
Your RowanCard (University ID card) will be encoded to access your Dining Service Account. You must present your RowanCard to the cashier for entrance into the Student Center Marketplace. The All-Access plan allows students to enter the Student Center Marketplace as many times as they choose throughout the week. Students who have the All-Access plan will be able to use one meal equivalency per time period in the Food Court or other food locations on-campus.

Students with a 14, 10, or 7 Meal Plan can enter the Student Center Marketplace and a meal will be deducted from their account for that week. Only one meal may be eaten at each meal time in the Student Center Marketplace.

The week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday. As one of your meals, you may choose from selected combo options in the Food Court or other on-campus food locations(see Cash Equivalency). Each plan comes with Dining Dollars that may be accessed using your RowanCard and used in any dining location on-campus. Each plan also includes 'Boro Bucks which may be used at any location on- or off-campus that accepts the RowanCard including food locations and the bookstore.

How do the 25 and 50 block plans work?
Any non-resident hall student may purchase one of these plans. The block plans allow students 25 or 50 meals per semester that can be used at any time. One meal is deducted from your account, each time you enter the Student Center Marketplace. Unlike the other plans, you may eat more than one meal in a meal time or you can bring a guest. Meals do not carry over from one semester to the next. As with the other plans you may use one of your meals as an equivalency in the Food Court or other on-campus food locations (see Cash Equivalency).  Students may purchase additional block plans throughout the semester if needed.  These plans include $75 Dining Dollars and $100 'Boro Bucks.

Can I use my Meal Plan with off-campus merchants?
Students can use 'Boro Bucks at any of our off-campus merchants. Any student disputing a charge from an off-campus merchant can contact the RowanCard Office at x4531 for assistance.

Dining Dollars are accepted at on-campus food locations only.

How do Dining Dollars & 'Boro Bucks work?
Dining Dollars and 'Boro Bucks are integrated into all meal plans to give you added flexibility and convenience. Dining Dollars may be used at any on-campus dining location. They also may be used to supplement your meal plan in lieu of a meal or paying for a friend to eat with you. 'Boro Bucks may be used at all locations both on- and off-campus that accept the RowanCard. Dining Dollars and 'Boro Bucks carry over from the fall semester to the spring semester. At the end of the spring semester, remaining 'Boro Bucks will carry over to the next academic year; however, Dining Dollars will expiire at the end of the academic year.

What is Cash Equivalency?
You may use Cash Equivalency in the Food Court in lieu of a meal in the Student Center Marketplace. Each location will offer selected combo's at or below the cash price, which can be used as a meal. If you do not choose one of the selected combo's or equivalency specials, you may use the cash allowance for that time period towards your purchase. If your purchase exceeds the cash allowance, you may charge the remaining balance to your dining dollar account or use cash.

How do I cancel or change a Meal Plan?
Cancellations of the All-Access, 14, 10 and 7 Meal Plans are allowed except for students residing in a residence hall and are pro-rated, on a weekly basis, through the first two weeks only (similar to tuition and fees). Thereafter, there will be no refund for the remaining weeks. Students may change to a higher weekly plan (10,14 or All-Access) at any time (pro-rated after the 2nd week).  The 25 and 50 block plan will be refunded on a meal remaining basis until the end of the third week after which there will be no refund for remaining unused meals. Students may purchase additional block plans throughout the semester if needed.  Unspent Dining Dollars and Boro Bucks carry from semester to semester. You may change your Meal Plan (up or down) to a plan that suits you best during the first two weeks of the semester.
