Meal Credits | Restaurants and Cafés

When using your plan to purchase a meal at one of our restaurants or cafés on campus, you will use Meal Credits. Each location has its own Meal Credit rate that can be used toward a purchase once per meal period. You can also use Meal Credits to buy a dining hall take-out meal.

If you stay under the rate, you won’t owe anything more. If you choose to spend more, make up the difference with Dining Dollars or another form of accepted payment. Only one Meal Credit can be used per meal period and there is a limit of two bottled beverages per Meal Credit transaction at restaurants and cafés.


2017-2018 Meal Credit Rates by Location


Dining Dollars | All Locations

Dining Dollars are flexible funds that supplement your meal plan. Consider it “bonus” Meal Credits or extra “food money.” Use Dining Dollars to:

  • Buy extra meals or snacks if a meal has already been used during a meal period or if you run out of meal plan meals.
  • Cover the difference if you spend more than the allotted Meal Credit at a campus restaurant or café.
  • Make purchases at our C-Stores and vending machines.

Please note, we will automatically enroll you for the same amount of Dining Dollars in the spring unless you alert us before January 31. Additional Dining Dollars can be added throughout the semester if you run out, by visiting the Wolfpack One Card Office in Talley Student Union or online at

Unspent Dining Dollars will roll forward from semester to semester during the student’s enrollment, but will only be refundable for the semester in which they were purchased, when canceled by September 30 for the fall semester and January 31 for the spring semester.
