Your Choices, Defined.

Meal Plans for Resident Students and Commuter Students

Meal Plans offer discounted package plans each semester. Selecting a meal plan is required for resident students, and choices are also available for commuter students.

  • Selection/changes are available up to the first five days of each semester.
  • Upgrades are available through add/drop.
  • Additional funds may be added to your Cave Cash at any time.
  • Find dates on the Academic Calendar.

    Access Plans (Meals per Week)

    Access Plans (meals per week) are visits to the all-you-can-eat Dining Hall. These meals repeat/reset every week and unused meals during this week are forfeited.

    Block Plans

    Block Plans allow students to purchase a set number of meals to use any time over the course of the semester at the Dining Hall. All meals are per semester and do not roll over to the next semester. Remaining purchased meals at the end of each semester are removed from your account on or around the last day of the semester.

    Munch Money

    Resident students benefit from additional spending options with a meal plan that includes Munch Money. Purchase food at any retail brand or bring guests to the Student Center Dining Hall using Munch Money. Because Munch Money is rolled into a meal plan, it’s not subject to sales tax. All meals on the plans are per semester and do not roll over to the next semester. However, the remainder of your Munch Money will roll over from fall to spring semester and spring to summer semester. At the end of summer semester, any unused Munch Money will expire after final exams when resident students are required to vacate student housing.

    Bear Bucks

    Bear Bucks are an addition to the meal plan that allows students to purchase food items at retail venues or the Dining Hall. Bear Bucks are taxable funds. These funds do not roll over from semester to semester. Unused funds $25 and over will be subject to automatic removal from the Claw Card and placed back on the student's account as a credit at the end of each semester.

    Meal Exchange (ME)

    Meal Exchange is temporarily suspended during modified operations.

    Cave Cash

    Cave Cash funds can be used campus-wide at food venues and vending machines where Claw Cards are accepted. Adding Cave Cash to your card is voluntary and deposits can be made in any denomination. These funds do not expire. They roll over from semester to semester and from year to year until you are no longer a student. Once you are no longer a student, the money is applied back to your Grizzly Den within Banner account and is returned if there is no outstanding balance owed to the College for tuition, fees or fines.

Remaining Bear Bucks balances over $25 are returned to students' Grizzly Den within Banner accounts at the end of the semester. Meal Plan holders may pay for guests using Block Plans, Munch Money, Bear Bucks, Cave Cash, debit/credit or cash at the Dining Hall door price. Conditions of Claw Card use apply.
