Meal plans are refunded 100% (less any Declining Balance usage) during the initial meal plan change period (up until 12:30 p.m. on the Friday of the first week of class). After the meal plan change period has passed refunds are issued on a prorated basis (based on date of cancellation) only when granted a contract release through the Housing Office. Once a refund is issued you will no longer be able to use your meal swipes and/or declining balance associated with that term. Prior declining balance will remain active. Meal plan cancellations and refunds will be processed within 48 hours once a request or notification is received and will show up on your student account within 48 hours after processing.
