Additional Information

Every meal plan comes with an allotment of bonus bucks, they are tax-free bucks that work as a declining balance on the student's ID card and can be used at all dining locations on campus. Bonus bucks can be reloaded in $25 increments under the Shop Now tab on our web site. Click here for more detailed information on the Meal Plan Rates and other pertinent information.

All participants must have their Ithaca College ID card to access their meal plan. Meal plans are based on a seven day week that begins on Friday and ends on Thursday to ensure enough meals are available over weekends. Unused meals do not carry over to the following week. Meal plans are exclusively for the participant's use only. However, each meal plan comes with three guest passes per semester; these passes can be used for any guest or for the participant. Guest passes are preloaded onto the Ithaca College ID card and expire at the end of each semester, they are not carried forward to the next semester.

All incoming students required to be enrolled on a meal plan will be automatically defaulted to the 14+ Blue meal plan. Returning students required to be on a meal plan will be defaulted to the plan they had the previous semester. There are many meal plan options available; please review the information regarding different meal plan options and how to change your meal plan
