Q: How do the meal plans work? What is the difference between flex dollars and number of meals?

Each meal plan provides two options. You may go to the dining hall located in the Student Union Building and enjoy an all you care to eat meal. When you use this option, a meal is deducted from the total # of meals available on the meal plan you selected. Later you might decide to have a snack at our Purple Brew coffee shop. Here you can use your Flex Dollars to purchase the food and beverage options available.

The application fee is due when the application is submitted. Any application submitted without the application fee is not considered complete and no room assignment will be forthcoming until the fee is received.
