Declining Balance Meal Plan
- As per the Residence Contract, all students residing on campus are required to participate in the Declining Balance Meal Plan.
- A minimum of $1,690.00 of each semester’s residence fees are allocated to the Declining Balance Meal Plan. This amount ($1,690.00), or the amount of the Meal Plan Option chosen, is credited to each residence student’s meal card at the beginning of each semester.
- Unused portions on the student’s meal card in the fall semester are carried over into the winter semester.
- Unused portions of the credited non-refundable amounts ($1,690.00/semester) will be forfeited at the end of the Academic year.
- Residence students that withdraw from residence during the course of a semester will forfeit any unspent amounts of the minimum non-refundable amount ($1,690.00) that was credited to their meal card at the beginning of each semester. Students who continue to attend Concordia may, however, continue to use their meal card throughout the rest of the academic year. Unused portions of the credited amounts are forfeited at the end of the academic year in which the student withdraws from residence.
- Meal funds can be used at any time during Cafeteria hours.
- Funds cannot be transferred to another student’s account.
- Students with dietary restrictions due to medical, religious, or other reasons should contact Concordia’s Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) directly before signing the Residence Contract, to determine whether their dietary needs can be accommodated. Students are encouraged to discuss their diet restrictions with the RLC, before moving into residence. The RLC, in consultation with Concordia’s Caterer, will determine whether the student’s dietary needs can be accommodated. Once a student has moved into residence, he/she will not be able opt out of the Declining Balance Meal Plan. Concordia’s RLC can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
