Meal Plan


Students eating at Adams Market

The meal plans for the 2017-18 academic year are among the most flexible in the nation. They allow you, the customer, to decide where, when, and how often you want to eat.

The meal plans are based on a declining dollars system, and were designed according to student input. Purchase a particular plan, and each time you eat in an on-campus dining outlet, an amount is deducted from your balance. In the a la carte options, the exact amount you spend will be deducted from your meal plan.

The plans feature a specified dollar amount that can be carried over from semester-to-semester, as long as a dining contract is in place. For example, if you have the Gold meal plan, you will be able to transfer up to $280 unused meal plan dollars from fall to spring, or spring to summer, or spring to fall - whichever is the next semester for which you have a dining plan contract.
For questions about meal plans, please visit the Meal Plan Office located in 301 Student Union, call (405) 744-4920 or email

The "average number of weekly meals" is provided only as a frame of reference to help gauge which meal plan is best suited for your needs. This number is NOT a spending limit or a maximum number of meals allowed and will vary on a student-by-student basis depending on your particular dining habits.

Unused funds, up to the "maximum rollover" limits, carry from semester-to-semester with a valid meal plan contract.Meal Plan Agreement
