Add or Change Meal Plan


Check Your Meal Plan Balance (Desktop only)

On your phone? You can select, add or drop meal plans in the W&M Mobile app. Download the app and tap Tribe Card to continue.

All meal plan adjustments will be applied to your Student Account in Banner. Changes could take up to 48 hours to post to the Student Account. 

You may make one change to your meal plan until  the end of the add/drop period at no charge. Additional changes will be assessed a $25 processing fee. Changes for Fall 2020 may be made online through September 3.

Be sure to select change meal plan, to avoid having multiple meal plans. If a second meal plan is accidentally added, just select drop meal plan to drop the meal plan you no longer want.

Auto-Renewal (Rollover)

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. Unused Dining Dollars will roll from the fall semester to the spring semester but unused meal swipes will expire. So, if you had a block plan with 17 meals  and $12 Dining Dollars left in December, when you return in January, the Dining Dollars will roll to your new plan but the meal swipes will expire. 


Meal plan exemptions may only occur under extraordinary circumstances, pending approval by the Meal Plan Petition Committee. You will need to complete the Meal Plan Petition online. Petitions with supporting documentation will generally be reviewed once all required documentation is received and consultations are conducted. 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. 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.  

Need to make an allowable meal plan adjustment after the add/drop period?  
Email [[w|dining]]. Changes will include a $25 processing fee in addition to refunds based on the daily meal rate. Daily meal rate charges do not apply to changes made prior to add/drop.
