Academic Year 2019-2020 Plans

All first-entry students living on campus are required to have a meal plan unless they are assigned to University Towers. Students assigned to this residence hall are required to have a University Towers plan and can supplement it with an optional NC State Commuter/Apartment plan for on-campus dining. (Exemption from the meal plan requirement is only available under certain circumstances such as those related to a disability or other special consideration.

Adding New Meal Plan

If you are not currently enrolled in a Fall 2019 meal plan but wish to do so, call or email, or stop by the Wolfpack One Card office for a prorated plan between 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday.

Students may enroll in a Spring 2020 meal plan beginning November 1. In the meantime, we’ve provided meal plan details below.

Modifying Your Plan

The deadline to modify a Fall 2019 meal plan ended September 30. If you have a fall plan, you are automatically enrolled in the same plan for Spring 2020. If you wish to modify your plan, please return to our website between November 1 and January 31.

Plans are priced per semester and billed through the cashier’s office. Meal plans and campus food transactions are subject to NC sales tax. Meal plan selections can be changed until September 30 for the fall semester and January 31 for the spring semester.
