Frequently Asked Questions

Do unused meals carry over to the following week?

The Platinum and the Gold plan feature unlimited weekly meals; you will never run out of meals. Meals from the 11 meal plan, do not carry over from one week to the next. The meals on the 11 Meal plan reset on Thursday. Thus making the week run from Wednesday to Thursday. Meals from the 120 block plan do carry over from week to week throughout the semester; they do not carry over into the following semester.
