A Commuter Meal Plan for You!

Customize a plan to fit the way you live. Start up a membership with as little as $50. Memberships come in many convenient shapes and sizes. A magnetic stripe on the back of your student ID card identifies you as a dining plan member. By combining a "Semester Meal Allowance" with "Declining Balance Dollars," you can customize a plan that's right for you.  To purchase a commuter meal plan stop in the Dining Services Office located in Strebel Student Center or call (315)-792-3178.
