Residential Meal Plans

DINING DOLLARS WILL NOT BE ACTIVATED AND AVAILABLE FOR USE UNTIL MONDAY, AUGUST 30, PROVIDED ALL FEES DUE THE UNIVERSITY HAVE BEEN PAID IN FULL. IF THERE IS A BALANCE DUE ON YOUR ACCOUNT, THE DINING DOLLARS WILL ACTIVATE AUTOMATICALLY ONCE THE BALANCE HAS BEEN PAID. 

Students who reside in University owned, operated or managed residence halls are required to purchase a meal plan. Residential students who do not select a meal plan by the published deadlines will automatically be charged the ALL ACCESS (unlimited meal plan swipes per week) meal plan and a $250 dining dollar plan as offered that semester.  Plans are subject to change should the university meal plan program not offer the Deluxe plan.

General Information

Access to the meal plan is through use of the RAM ID card at the cashier station of the dining hall or retail site. NO RAM ID CARD, NO MEAL!

If an ID card is lost, stolen or damaged, you must pay the fee and have a new card printed in order to access your meal plan. The replacement fee for a list, stolen or damaged ID card is $10. Refer to the ID Card Policy at https://www.asurams.edu/docs/ legal-affairs/policies/ University-ID-Card-Policy final.pdf.

Dining Dollars may be used to purchase breakfast, lunch or dinner in the cafes on both east and west campuses or at any retail establishment, i.e., RAMS Hideaway, Golden Espresso, Chick-fil-A, Pizza Hut, Chilaca or the Food Truck. The meal plan holder is not limited as to what he/she may purchase during the day as long as funds are available.

Students may purchase additional dining dollar plans throughout the semester. Any unused dining dollars remaining at the end of each semester are refunded within 30 days from the last day of the semester with the following exceptions. Unused dining dollars will be refunded if the balance is less than the incentive added to the plan but greater than $10.  Example:  purchased $150 but received $170.  Unused balance is $5.  There is no refund because the balance is less than $10.  Balance was $165 then refund would be $150.  The amount paid not including the added incentive.
