The AYCE dining plan allows you to eat as much or as little as you like for a “meal swipe.” You are allowed one swipe per meal period, and re-entry is allowed by paying the standard door rate utilizing cash, credit, or flex dollars.
What is “All-You-Care-To-Eat” (AYCE) dining?
How many meals can I use each day?
Each meal plan holder may use ONE MEAL SWIPE per MEAL PERIOD.
What happens if I do not use all of my meals for that week?
Meals do not carry over from week to week.
Can I use my meal plan at the Library Café?
Meal plan swipes may be used for any item at the Library Café all WEEKEND. Meal swipes are redeemed as a $6.50 cash equivalency. Flex dollars, cash, or credit card can be used for purchases or to cover any difference above $6.50.
What happens if I run out of meals?
You may still participate in the AYCE dining plan by paying the standard door rate using cash, credit, or flex dollars. Additionally, smaller “Meal Plan Blocks” are also available for purchase at discounted rates.
What are flex dollars?
Flex dollars are pre-paid currency that can be used at any of our dining outlets in addition to many retail locations on and off campus. Flex dollars can be purchased through the Bursars Office at any time. Flex dollars carry over from the Fall to the Spring semester and will not expire until the end of the academic year.
Can I use financial aid to purchase meal plans or flex dollars?
Yes! Please contact the Financial Aid Office at 607-962-9222 for more information.
