How can I purchase a Meal Plan?

You can purchase your meal plan by clicking here, or by visiting us on campus at The Greenery in the CAB. If you are a student, living on-campus and required to purchase a meal plan, you must do so through the housing (Residential and Dining Services) office located in Res. Hall A.

Are Meal Plans required?

All students that are living on-campus, with 40 credits or less are required to purchase a meal plan. Meal plans are purchased through housing (Residential and Dining Services) and will be added to your housing costs. For students living off-campus or in the on-campus apartments a meal plan purchase is not required, many students take advantage of the convenience and value a meal plan has to offer.

What is Declining Balance?

Declining Balance dollars are accepted as payment at all on campus restaurants. They are loaded right on your Student ID card, so there is no need to carry around cash or another card! There is no minimum balance, over draft fees, or hassles! And you never pay sales tax when using DB!

How do I get Declining Balance?

Declining Balance can be purchased by clicking here, or by visiting us on campus at The Greenery in the CAB.

What if I want to change my Meal Plan?

If you purchased a Meal Plan through housing (RAD), Meal Plan change requests must be submitted to the RAD Office before the end of the first week, each quarter. For questions, give us a call at 360-867-6281.

How do I get into the dining locations once I have purchased my Meal Plan?

Within 24 hours, your Student ID card will be activated with your meal plan. Present your card to the cashier in the dining hall, and you are all set!

Can I carry meals over to the next semester?

If you purchased a meal plan through RAD or a Voluntary 1 or 2 plan, all meals expire at the end of the quarter. If you purchased a Faculty/Staff Plan or Voluntary Plans 3-9, your unused meals and DB will roll-over each quarter.

Can I treat a friend to a meal?

To keep discounts as high as possible, meals are reserved for the meal plan holder only. However, you can always treat a friend using Declining Balance dollars or with a guest pass. All Voluntary and Faculty/Staff plans allow the customer to treat a friend to meals.

What do I do when my Declining Balance gets low?
