Frequently Asked Questions

What are Points/Flex Dollars?

Points/Flex Dollars are the declining balance funds that are attached to your meal plan. Depending on the plan, these funds range from $25.00 to $100.00. They can be used in the retail operation, Simply to Go or the TOP. Points/Flex Dollars roll over from Fall Semester to Spring Semester, but are forfeited at the end of Spring Semester.

What is the Difference between the Carte Blanche and the Block Plans?

Any of the Block plans, whether it is the Block 160 or the Preferred or Preferred Plus Plans, are number specific so the Block 160 averages out to about 10 meals per week. Preferred Meal Plan averages out to about 2 meals per week and Preferred Plus averages out to about 3 meals per week. Carte Blanche, on the other hand is unlimited, other than the use of Simply to Go. You can use the TOP as many times a day as needed, except for the use of Simply to Go.

Is there a limit to how many times I can use my meal plan in the TOP per week?

No, every meal plan (except for the unlimited Carte Blanche of course) is a block plan- that is the number of meals attached to it can be used at any time. The only exception to this has to do with Simply to Go. If Simply to Go is used during a meal period, you cannot use the TOP during the same meal period, you must wait until the next meal period to come back. Simply to Go may only be used twice a day, regardless of the plan that you have.

How do I know how many Meals, Points/Flex Dollars I have left?

When you use the retail operation, your account balance, for your Points/Flex Dollars are at the bottom of your receipt. When using the TOP, you can ask for a receipt or simply ask the cashier to tell you.
