End of Semester Meal Plan Information
Information to help you plan your purchases in Campus Dining for the remainder of the semester.
All meal money (board) plans are valid through 7:30pm on Saturday December 15, 2012
You may check your remaining balance by asking any cashier, or by enrolling in MANAGE MY ID. Please take a moment to check out the meal plan usage signs posted in the Marketplace, or to look at the chart on-line.
VENDING FUNDS: All meal money plans had a vending account set up at the beginning of the semester ($80 for A & B, $50 for C, $30 for D). You may check this balance at any cashier stand, via MANAGE MY ID, or at the vending machines (Academic Commons, Samuelson Pavilion, Keck Theater, Bell-Young, Norris and Rangeview - you don't need to make a purchase). If you deplete all your meal money, funds will automatically begin drawing from available vending funds; there is no need to request a transfer of funds. If you are on plan A or B and have funds remaining in vending at the end of the semester, these funds will be added to your balance for Rollover calculations.
FLEX: If you anticipate running out of meal plan funds before the end of the semester, you may open a FLEX account on-line. Go to myOxy: [Student Services, Student Business Services, Debit Account Deposit]. FLEX account purchases receive a 5% discount in the dining facilities. Unspent balances transfer over to the next semester or year.
RETURNING STUDENTS: If you are on meal plan A or B and anticipate having a large balance left over at the end of the semester, you may want to maximize your Rollover account. Rollover accounts can be very useful if you move off campus, need to dine over winter or summer break, or move to a lower meal plan.
That said, if you have a surplus remaining balance and wish to spend it, please use the following guidelines:
If you plan to buy cases of products, your best bet is the Marketplace. The Marketplace sells cases, subject to supply on hand, seven days a week. To buy cases, ask any manager or cashier. While we increase our orders at the end of the semester, we have storage limitations. Some items will run out, so DON’T WAIT UNTIL YOUR LAST DAY ON CAMPUS to make your purchases. Weekday mid-afternoons (except Thursdays) are the best time to buy in bulk.
The Tiger Cooler has very small storage facilities and we limit bulk purchases to keep stock on hand for regular business. The Tiger Cooler sells limited cases Monday-Thursday only. To buy cases, ask the counter person, manager or cashier.
The Coffee Cart does not sell cases. The Green Bean may offer limited case sales on selected products only. In the interest of sustainability, we do not sell cases of water.
Not all items are available for case purchase. No cases or other products may be ordered in advance or put on hold for later pick up. We cannot lend out carts for transportation, so please bring enough person-power to carry your purchases.
If you are leaving campus early and will have a balance left on your meal plan, please resist the temptation to give your ID card to a hungry friend. ID cards and meal plans are not transferable, and you will both be referred to the Conduct Process. Our cashiers check ID cards to make sure that they are not being used fraudulently.
Meal plan changes for spring are now being accepted on-line. Go to myOxy: [Student Services, Student Business Services, Meal Plan Select Form].
