Meal plans are required for all residential students. Commuter students may purchase a meal plan during the first four weeks of each semester. Meal plans can be used at the Main Stream Café or Orbit Lounge during operating hours. Meal plans offer a convenience by allowing use of the student ID card to utilize the meal plan. 

Commuter students contact the Financial Services Coordinator in the Information Technology Center to sign-up for or change a meal plan.

Meal plans are non-refundable after the start of each semester. For more information about meal plans, please contact the Foodservice Director at (573) 897-5106.
