  • When can I sign up for my Fall 2018 Meal Plan? 
    You can sign up for your Fall 2018 meal plan now until August 14, 2018 on the MyCharleston Portal. Students can also sign up any time at Cougar Card Services until August 27, 2018. View all Meal Plans here. Meal plans can still be purchased after August 27 in Cougar Card Services but can no longer be charged to the eBill and must be paid for at the time of purchase with cash, check, or any major credit card.

  • Will my meal plan auto renew for next semester? 
    Meal plans will roll over from Fall to Spring semester for students living in on campus housing. Meal Plans do not roll over semester to semester for off campus students.

  • Will unused meals or Dining Dollars roll over? 
    Dining Dollars roll over from semester to semester until the student graduates, withdraws or takes a formal leave of absence through the Office of Undergraduate Academic Services.

  • If I have already purchased a meal plan, can I change it?
    You can modify your Meal Plan selection until 5pm on the Drop/Add deadline date. For more information please visit the Cougar Card Services Meal Plan page.
