Breaking Down The Tiger Plan

One of the top three requests from our customers related to dining plans is the ability to use it anywhere on campus. With that in mind, we developed The Tiger Plan for off-campus students. The Tiger Plan was designed to provide a ton of value combined with flexibility of dining anywhere on campus. Here is how it works.

How to Maximize The Tiger Plan Value

Here are a few tips to maximize the value of your Tiger Plan.

  1. Add the additional $100 in flex dollars (the max you can). This immediately adds more purchasing power at all of our facilities. That $100 is $200 at a la carte locations, $120 at Mizzou Markets and $270 at all-you-care-to-eat facilities.
  2. Eat at all-you-care-to-eat facilities 100% of the time. $945 total value on The Tiger Plan 350 and $1702 total value on The Tiger Plan 630.
  3. Eat at all-you-care-to-eat facilities 50% of the time. The extra value covers the base cost.
  4. As a dining plan, students do not pay tax (7.975%) on food purchases using The Tiger Plan. This is another value-added feature.

How the Plan Works

The Tiger Plan is a new off-campus dining plan. The plan has two components: a base cost to cover fixed expenses including labor, utilities, maintenance and repairs, mortgage, Student Affairs programs and services and the remainder as flexible spending/decreasing balance dollars that can be used in all Campus Dining Services locations. Because the customer has already paid the base cost, a discount applies, depending on where the plan is used.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for the plan?

Student living off campus may purchase the Tiger Plan.

When do the flex dollars expire?

All flex dollars must be used by the end of the academic semester.

Can I cancel my plan?

Yes. If the customer cancels the plan, a refund will be given according to the prorate chart. Customers will be refunded the flex dollars only. The base cost will be retained by Campus Dining Services.

What is the base cost?

The base costs of the Tiger Plan covers fixed expenses, including labor, utilities, maintenance and repairs, mortgage, and Student Affairs programs and services.

Why is this plan only available to students living off-campus?

This is a pilot dining plan, targeted at increasing the number of off-campus students on dining plans (and generating new revenue during these challenging financial times). We need to ensure the plan works as we intend and see what impact it has on our customers and operations. Before we can make changes to the on-campus dining plan, we need to evaluate the financial structure and adjust the housing and dining contract (which requires about 12 months advance preparation).

Is this the right plan for me?

Campus Dining Services offers many options for students living off-campus. To help you decide which option is best for your needs, visit this page: How to Choose the Right Dining Plan.
