How do I use dining plans in a la carte dining plan locations?
At a la carte dining plan locations, students and guests order from a menu or select items from a shelf. These items are priced in cash and are converted to (or exchanged for) partial meals when they check out with the cashier. Here’s an example:
Baja Grill is a Caribbean-Mexican restaurant that operates as an a la carte dining plan location. If you choose a Chicken Quesadilla ($3.25), an order of chips ($1.00) and Baja’s Signature Bean Dip ($2.75); the order total totals $7.00.
The student or guest tells the cashier they are paying with their dining plan, gives the cashier her/his ID card, and the cashier swipes the card, removing one meal. In an a la carte dining plan locations, students can exchange 1 meal for $7.00. If the student purchases less than $7.00 or more than $7.00, partial meals are deducted from their dining plan. For example:
|Cheese Quesadilla||$ 2.75|
In this case, the cashier deducts .5 meal from the student’s dining plan.

25 MealsAvailable to all students
- Residential students who need extra meals may also purchase an additional block of 25 meals. This block may be purchased several times per semester, as needed. Any unused meals at the end of a semester will not carry over.
