Signing-up for a meal plan is done online, or in-person at the Dining Concierge Desk (beginning Fall 2014) in the Commons lobby.
You may change your meal plan once prior to the end of the add/drop period. Any additional changes will result in a $25 processing fee. For the 2014-2015 academic year, the add/drop period ends at 5 pm on Friday, September 5 for the fall semester and Friday, January 30 for the spring semester.
If you have a meal plan in the fall, you will automatically be assigned the same meal plan in the spring and be billed accordingly. However, any unused meals or Dining Dollars on the fall plan will not be added on to the spring plan. So, if you had a block plan with 17 meals and $12 Dining Dollars left in December, when you return in January, those meals and Dining Dollars will be gone.
After the add/drop period ends, there will be NO changes or cancellations except under extenuating circumstances, pending approval by the Contract Release Committee. You will need to download the Meal Plan Petition, complete it, and submit it to Auxiliary Services. Petitions with supporting documentation must be submitted to Auxiliary Services, Corner House room 205, faxed to the office (757-221-2506) or emailed to [[w|auxiliaryservices]] and will generally be reviewed during the first and third weeks of the month. The student will be contacted regarding the committee’s decision with an e-mail to their W&M e-mail address. If approved, you will be billed for all meals and Dining Dollars that were used, and a $25.00 processing fee. If your change is approved from a Gold meal plan to a Block meal plan, you will be charged for the number of days you were on the plan, your Dining Dollars used will be deducted from the new meal plan, and you will be assessed a $25.00 processing fee.
Note: Faculty & Staff must visit the Dining Concierge Desk (beginning Fall 2014) in the Commons to sign up for a meal plan.
