Eligibility & Minimum Meal Plan Purchases

Returning students who reside in a traditional residence hall must purchase a meal plan of 7 meals or higher. New first time residential students who live in a traditional residence hall, must select a 14 meal plan or all-access meal plan. Only residential students who reside in apartments and commuter students are permitted to select block plans. Students who reside in traditional residence halls who do not select an appropriate meal plan or fail to select one altogether, will be assigned and billed for the 7 meal plan prior to the start of the spring semester.

Meal Plan Cancellations and Changes

You may change your meal plan (up or down) to a plan that suits you best during the first two weeks of the semester. There is a full refund for cancellations through week 2 of the semester, with the exception of Rowan Bucks and Dining Dollars spent. There will be no refund for the remaining weeks. Students may change to a higher weekly plan (10 meal plan, 14 meal plan, or All-Access) at any time (pro-rated after the 2nd week). The 30 and 60 block plan will be refunded on a meal remaining basis until the end of the second week after which there will be no refund for remaining unused meals. Students may purchase additional block plans throughout the semester. Unspent Rowan Bucks carry from semester to semester, however, Dining Dollars expire at the end of the academic year. In addition, meals associated with block plans expire at the end of each semester.
