Meal Plan Information

  • Traditional Meal plans 15, 12, 9, and 5 meal per week
    Unused meals do not transfer from week to week.  Meals can only be used for the student to which the plan belongs.

  • Block Plans
    Unused meals do not transfer from Fall to Spring Semester.  At the end of each semester, any unused meals are non refundable and will not be transferred over to the next semester or the new academic year.  Students must use meals by the end of each semester.  Meals can only be used for the student to which the plan belongs.

  • Pirate Bucks
    Can be used any where on or off campus.  These will carry over from semester to semester.

  • Dining Dollars
    Can only be used in the Commons or The Cove.  These will carry over from Fall to Spring semester but must be used by the end of the Spring semester.  Any unused Dining Dollars will forfeit at the end of the Spring Semester.

Pirate Buc$

For added flexibility, students can supplement their meal plan by opening a "Pirate Buc$" account. This is a convenient prepaid account that works just like a checking account. A "Pirate Buc$" account can either be used to supplement any of the afore mentioned meal plans or it can be maintained as a separate account. Everytime an individual item is purchased, the "Pirate Buc$" account will be debited electronically. Students can keep track of their balance by asking the cashier.

This convenient "debit" account allows students to pay a guest rate and access additional meals or treat a friend to a meal in The Commons and The Cove. Pirate Buc$ may be purchased at the Business Office, and are also available to faculty & staff!
