For the Fall semester, Meal plans can only be revised downward during the first two weeks of school. If you would like to increase your meal plan, you can do that at any time. When you process your bill for the Spring semester, you may select any meal plan at that time. Students who enter Alfred State as a new student or a transfer in the Spring semester have two weeks to change their meal plan selection.
Students may change their meal plan selection only during the first two weeks of the fall semester. After that, you can change your meal plan when you process your bill for the spring semester. Only new students who enter Alfred in January will have two weeks in the spring semester to modify their meal plan.
The Campus Spending Account (CSA) has many uses. It can be used to purchase anything you need at the Campus Store, it can be used at any on-campus dining location, and it also allows you to make purchases at Campus Partner locations -- all without having to carry cash. Campus fines or fees may also be paid using CSA.
The meal plan you choose depends on your eating habits and daily schedule. If you want three meals a day and plan to be on campus most of the time, the 18-meal plan would suit you. ACES recommends that freshmen select the 18 or 14-meal plan until they are comfortable with their options and schedule.
Remember, unused meals each week are not refundable or transferrable due to New York State tax law.
Meal plans make sense because it is a healthy, easy and economical way to eat when you are away at school. Meal plans at ASC are designed to fit your lifestyle and your taste buds all within easy walking distance.
