Budgeting Your Points 2017-18

The tips and charts published here apply to meal plans in effect through spring and summer of 2018. New meal plans starting in fall 2018 will no longer be points based. All current meal plans based on points will retire by August 2018. Your points will expire and will no longer be available at the end of the spring semester or summer session depending on your plan.

Are you wondering how many points you should be using per week? How many points you should have at the beginning of a specific week?

Find the date and your meal plan type. The declining balance charts suggest where you should be each week. Remember, you can always add points at any time.

You are allowed to roll over 100 points from fall to spring, and these charts do not reflect any rollover points.


Resident Meal Plans

Note: The Ultimate Meal plan does not require you to keep track of points for entry into the dining commons. However, be sure to use your bonus points by the last day to use points. All meal plans will expire at the end of the academic year.
