Flex Use

Use the guide below to stay on track with managing your Flex Dollars.

You can use this chart to compare your spending habits with the money available on your Major or Mega or Premium Flex Plan. This will help you determine whether you will run out of money before the end of the semester, or whether you will have too much. It is important to remember that each student has different eating habits, and where you choose to eat on a daily basis has a great impact on how much money you will spend. Therefore, the amount of money you will need may differ from the average amounts displayed on this chart.


Most people don't eat in the dining centers for every meal, so the Major Flex Plan is designed to cover about 10 meals per week throughout the semester, and the Mega Flex Plan provides about 12, and the Premium Flex Plan provides about 14.
