Flex Use

You can use this chart to compare your spending habits with the money available on your Major or Mega or Premium Flex Plan. This chart can also help you manage your dining plan balance for the entire semester. It is important to remember that each student has different dining habits, and where you choose to eat on a daily basis has a great impact on how much money you will spend. All dining plans work like debit cards, with the price of a purchase subtracted from the balance, and the cost of meals varies at different dining centers. Therefore, the amount of money you will need may differ from the average amounts displayed on this chart.

 

In addition to meals at dining centers, students often eat off campus, so the Major Flex Plan is designed to cover about 10 meals per week throughout the semester, the Mega Flex Plan provides about 12, and the Premium Flex Plan provides about 14.
