Meal Plan Requirement:
PLU’s Board of Regents has determined it is not feasible to offer housing and meal services separately during the academic year. Students contracting for housing at PLU (except those assigned to live in South Hall at the time this contract is submitted) are automatically contracted for meals. Students requiring special accommodations should contact the Dining & Culinary Services office at 253-535-7472.
Meal Plan Deadline:
Students may add or change their meal plan without a penalty for any semester until 5:00 p.m. the day before meals begin for the respective semester. The specific dates for the start of the 2014-15 Meal Plans are September 4, 2015, for Fall Semester, January 4, 2015 for J-Term and February 1, 2015 for Spring Semester. After the deadlines noted above, changes in meal plans will be assessed a $50.00 handling fee. New contracts may be signed at any time throughout the year and will be assessed the fee. Students may charge their PLU Student Account to add additional Dining Dollars to their LuteCard account at any time until midnight on April 30th. Students may purchase Dining Dollars at the Campus Concierge at anytime, however, Dining Dollars purchased at the Campus Concierge must be paid for at the time of purchase.
Meal Plan Cancellation:
Your meal plan may be cancelled online at the Dining & Culinary Services website. If you're moving off-campus, live in South Hall, or are studying abroad, you may need to cancel your meal plan online at the Dining & Culinary Services website.
Cancelling University housing within the first 14 weeks of the semester will result in an automatic cancellation of Student’s meal plan agreement. There are no refunds for cancelling after the Monday of the 14th week of classes each semester. When Student officially withdraws from the University, unused Dining Dollars purchased the semester of withdrawl and future all-you-care-to-eat meals, will be credited to the PLU student account. Refunds will not be provided for previous semester's Dining Dollars or unused all-you-care-to eat-meals.
The University LuteCard is used in The Commons for AYCTE meals purchased through a meal plan contract and to purchase meals with Dining Dollars at all campus restaurants. The Student must present a valid card to be admitted to AYCTE meals or to make purchases with Dining Dollars. It is for the exclusive use of the Student to whom it is issued and is non-transferable. Any misuse of the LuteCard including the inappropriate transfer to others for any campus access will subject the owner to disciplinary action. Responsibility for safeguarding and proper use of the card is solely that of its owner. Students can avoid any inconvenience and expense to themselves by treating their card as though it were cash or a credit card. Faulty, damaged or defaced cards will not be accepted. A card that is lost/stolen, damaged or defaced may be repaired or replaced at the Campus Concierge, a replacement fee may be charged.
