Meal Plan Basics
In order to meet your campus dining needs, we have
designed the following meal plans for the 2012-2013
academic year. If you need to purchase a meal plan,
or if you would like to make a change to the plan you
have already selected, simply contact FMU Dining Services
at 843.661.1260 for details.
There are two levels of traditional meal plans that
provide a set number of meals for each week of the
academic semester; 19 and 14 Meal Plans. These meals
can be used 7 days in Ervin Dining Hall. There are two voluntary meal plans: Liberty Plan and Patriot Plan. Meal Plans
are in effect the entire academic semester EXCEPT
for official University holidays, the period between
academic semesters and official academic breaks as
scheduled in the university bulletin.
Meal Plan - $1489
This plan allows you to eat all meals served
per week. This plan is mandatory for dormitory
Meal Plan- $1381
This plan allows you to eat 14 meals per week.
Dormitory residents who have completed 24 academic
credit hours may request the 14 Meal Plan during
the seven days after open registration. This
request is submitted to the General Manager
of FMU Dining Services (Office located in Ervin Dining Hall).
|Liberty Plan- $546
This plan allows any six meals served in Ervin Dining Hall Monday thru Sunday. PLUS an additional $50 in Patriot Bucks per semester.
|Patriot Plan - $200
This plan is a Declining Balance Plan which provides $225 worth of Patriot Bucks to spend at the Grille or Ervin Dining Hall. The plan also provides an additional 10% discount from the cash price when used in The Grille and Ervin Dining Hall.
Plan - $50 Minimum
This plan can be used during any meal, anytime
during the semester; use of this plan is also allowed at the Patriot Bookstore. When you show your FMU
Card to the cashier, the amount of your purchase
will be deducted from your total. A special
discount of 10% off the cash price is given
each time you use your FMU Card in Ervin Dining
Hall and The Grille. Any left over money will be carried over
to the next semester.
Meal Plan Refund Policy
The Housing and Dining Refund Policy is separate and apart from the Academic Refund Policy and follows different procedures than the Academic Refund Policy due to the unique business of providing food and housing services to students.
Students who withdraw from on-campus housing during the period between the authorized move-in date through 14 calendar days into the fall and spring semesters will receive a 90% refund of the housing fee, less the $150 Housing reservation fee. The 90% refund period begins on the authorized move-in date and continues through 14 calendar days into the fall and spring semesters. During this period, students with a mandatory meal plan that withdraw from the residence halls or move from the residence halls to the apartments will receive a 90% refund of the meal plan assessment. All other students who wish to change or withdraw from a voluntary meal plan during this period may request a refund by completing and submitting the Dining Services Refund Request form (available at the Ervin Dining Hall). This policy does not apply to any declining balance accounts.
After the 90% refund period, there is no guaranteed refund of housing and meal plan fees. However, appeals will be considered for situations such as marriage, activation for military service, or uniquely extenuating circumstances that occur during the term of the contract. Appeals must be made within the academic semester that the appeal is based upon and should be submitted as soon as possible after the change of status occurs.
All appeals require completion of the Housing and/or Dining Refunds - Appeal Form which must be submitted to the Director of Housing and/or the Director of Dining Services who will forward the request to the Housing and Dining Refund Committee. Students will be notified in writing of the committee's decision. The Housing reservation fee of $150 will be deducted from all refunds with the exception of academic dismissal and military activation. The decision of the Housing and Dining Refund Committee is final.
Lost Card Policy
If a student loses his identification card he is to immediately
notify the dining services office so that a hold can be placed
on his account to keep the lost card from being used.
If a student loses his identification card he will be able to
get a replacement during regular ID station hours at the Rogers
Library. If an identification card is lost during off hours he
will be able to get a temporary identification card at Ervin
Dining Hall in order to purchase meals until the ID station re-opens.
