Meal Plans 2020–2021

Graduate/Extension Students

Graduate students or UC Berkeley Extension students may purchase a Graduate/Extension meal plan.

Meal plans include flex dollars, and work on a declining balance basis. Flex dollars may be used in the dining commons, campus restaurants, convenience stores, concession stands, and to pay for guest meals at a discount from the cash price in the dining commons.

Flex dollars will not roll over into the summer session, or from academic year to academic year. Any flex dollars not used by the last day of the spring semester will be forfeited.

Flex dollars function like cash dollars—1 flex dollar has the purchasing power of $1. For example, a purchase of $2.01 would cost 2.01 flex dollars. Flex dollars cannot be refunded, transferred to another meal plan holder, or canceled.

Graduate/Extension Plan

The Graduate/Extension meal plan provides 300 flex dollars for $300 to use within the academic year.

Graduate/Extension meal plans for 2020–2021 will be available to purchase on August 1st, 2020.
