How To Request A Dining Dollars Refund

Unused Dining Dollars carry over to the next semester and remain on the deposit until graduation or separation from the College. Campus Services will refund the Dining Dollar account balance after receipt of a written request (Dining Dollar Refund Form) from students who are graduating or separating from the College. Upon completion of the proper paperwork, Campus Services will be notified by the Center for Academic Performance and Persistence for those students taking a leave of absence or withdrawing from the College. No refunds will be issued for account balances less than $10. Refunds will be issued via direct deposit if an account is set up with the Treasurer’s Office. If direct deposit is not set up, a check will be mailed to the primary address on file or as stated in the request. The College of Charleston reserves the right to close any account that is inactive for 18 months or more. Balances in accounts that are inactive for more than 18 months will be reclaimed.

We’ve kept what’s most important to you in mind, building in the convenience, flexibility, quality, value and healthy options you deserve. Explore our meal plan options to learn more about what would be the best fit for you.
