Resident Meal Plans
All undergraduate resident students under the age of 25 at SSU are required to have a meal plan during Fall and Spring semesters. Meal plans for 2018-2019 are as follows:
- 20 meals-a-week - $1,975 ** Best value!**
- 15 meals-a-week + 200 dining dollars per semester - $2,051
- 14 meals-a-week - $1,508
- 10 meals-a-week + 200 dining dollars per semester - $1,550
Resident Students are not required to have a meal plan in the summer but may purchase a commuter meal plan.
Do You Want to Change Your Resident Plan?
If you do not want the plan that is currently assigned to you, you may change your plan no later than 3:00 p.m. on Friday of the first full week of classes. Please fill out the Residential Meal Change Request Form and submit in-person at the ID Card Office (199 King-Frazier) or email the completed form to email@example.com. If you are changing to a plan of the same type (traditional to traditional or dining dollars to dining dollars), you may do this at any time during the semester. The costs will be prorated by date. However, if going to a larger plan, the difference in cost between the two plans can only be charged on your student account through the last day of the "book voucher period", after which you must first go to the Cashier's Office.
Meal plan swipes do not carry over to the next semester, but unused dining dollars are refunded to your student account.
Students with off-campus employment or a medical condition who cannot be accommodated by Dining Services may apply for a meal plan reduction at the Auxiliary Services Office. For meal plan reduction, review and sign the Off-Campus Employment & Medical Meal Plan Reduction Policy. If the request is based on a medical disability, you must submit a Physician Statement for Meal Plan Reduction/Exemption form. No reduction is provided for being a vegetarian or vegan, since we offer a wide range of choices in our dining venues.
For further information about the meal plans, please see page 4 of the Auxiliary Services booklet.
Commuter Meal Plans
Commuter meal plans are available for students who do not live on campus, but wish to take advantage of the plan savings and to have the meal plan charged to their student account during the bookstore voucher period. These plans may also be purchased by residential graduate students and students 25 and older during Spring and Fall semesters, and by all resident students in the summer.
Commuter Meal plans for 2018-2019 are as follows:
- 10 meals - $75
- 25 meals - $183
- 25 meals + 100 dining dollars - $283
- 50 meals - $343
- 100 meals - $662
Meal plans swipes do not carry over to the next semester; however, unused dining dollars are refunded to your student account.
Faculty and Staff Meal Plans
Special meal plans have been created for faculty and staff. Faculty and staff meal plans for 2018-2019 are as follows:
- 10 Meals - $80
- 25 Meals - $191
- 25 meals + 100 dining dollars - $309
- 50 meals - $365
- 100 meals - $713
These prices represent a savings over the casual rate that is paid at the door. Instructions for applying are on the online Faculty/Staff Meal Plan Application form. All faculty/staff meal plans may be purchased with cash, check, credit card, or by payroll deduction. Meal plans are good from August 1st through July 31st when food service is available and they are non-refundable. If meal plans are paid for by payroll deduction, any remaining payments will be deducted from the last check if an employee leaves. Employees who are taking classes at the University are considered employees for this purpose.
Catering at SSU
All events that are to be charged to an SSU department or office must be coordinated through Events Management (see link below) .
