Meal Plan Requirement

As an on-campus resident, you will automatically be enrolled in one of two Declining Balance (DB) meal plans each semester. Apartments with full kitchens require a lower Declining Balance plan than those without— such as Leo Goodwin Sr. and The Commons.

Note: Your Account Billing Statement will list your meal plan as Declining Balance.

What is Declining Balance?

All students living in on-campus housing are enrolled in a mandatory declining balance (DB) meal plan for the Fall and Winter semesters.

Your Declining Balance plan is loaded onto your Shark Card and works like a debit card that can be used at any on-campus Shark Dining location. All DB meal plan transactions are tax-free and any remaining balance at the end of the Fall Semester will roll over to the Winter Semester. Any remaining balance at the end of the Winter Semester will expire, and no longer be available.
