Spring 2025 Meal Plan Options

Hey Wolfpack! Get ready to eat well with our award-winning dining program.

  • All actively enrolled students are eligible for a meal plan regardless of whether or not they live in University Housing, Greek Life Housing or off-campus.
  • If you are enrolled in a meal plan for the fall semester, you will be auto-enrolled in the same plan for the spring unless you change or cancel your plan by February 1. (Note: only non-mandatory students can cancel their spring plan.)
  • Charges are sent to the Cashier’s office. If you have a scholarship or financial aid, these funds can be applied to your plan. Plans are priced per semester, and meal plans are subject to NC sales tax. Because taxes are included upfront, no tax will be charged at the cash register. 
  • Exemptions from the meal plan requirement are only available under certain circumstances such as those related to a disability or other special consideration.
  • If you are experiencing food insecurity and unable to afford a meal plan, please reach out to Pack Essentials for assistance at go.ncsu.edu/pack-essentials
