If my classes are cancelled for non-payment and I have a meal plan, is my meal plan cancelled or will I be denied access to the dining commons?

If your classes are cancelled, you may continue to dine up until re-instatement of your classes is no longer available. You will receive an email from Dining Services advising that your meal plan is in jeopardy of being cancelled. If your meal plan is cancelled due to non-payment, you will be denied access to the dining commons and you will owe the Bursar the payment on your meal plan.

If I'm on the meal plan, but have a conflict such as student teaching, studying abroad, an approved internship or graduation during one semester, how do I handle this?

If you will be on the meal plan for Fall semester, but one of these conflicts occurs during Spring semester then go ahead and sign up for the academic year contract. Once charges have posted to your account for Spring semester (usually late October or early November), visit the Dining Service Admin Office on the lower level of Snelling Dining Commons. If you are student teaching or studying abroad, you will need to bring documentation from your advisor verifying the conflict. If you are graduating, you will need to fill out a verification form in our office.

If I did not have a meal plan in Fall semester but get one for Spring semester, what is my financial and time commitment?

You are responsible for only one-half of the total academic year meal price - one semester's cost only. Your meal plan agreement will expire on the last day of Spring semester meal plan service. Your academic year meal plan will not carry over to the Summer or Fall semester.  


Can I purchase a meal plan anytime during the year?

Yes, you can purchase a meal plan after meal plan service has begun. However, the cost for the meal plan remains the full amount for the first 7 days of meal service. After that time, the cost will be reduced by one day’s cost at the daily meal plan rate for either the 5-day or 7-day meal plans. Note: Because the meal plan cost stays the same for the first week, there is no cost advantage in waiting to get on the meal plan unless you have no choice due to funds availability. 

How do I pay for my meal plan?

Meal plan fees are added to your student account and need to be paid in accordance with Bursar payment instructions sent to your UGA email. If you pay via my.uga.edu with a credit card (MC, Discover, AMEX), the total cost plus a 3% fee will be additionally charged. You may mail a check to the Bursar for your meal plan. Make your check payable to The University of Georgia and mail it to:

   UGA Bursar's Office
   105 Business Services Building 
   Athens, GA 30602-4227

Include the student's name and last four digits of their SSN on the check.
