Alumni & Friends: 

Is orientation mandatory?

Answer: 

It is very strongly encouraged. There is an abundance of information that needs to be passed on to new students with orientation being the primary way of providing this information to them. In addition, students will schedule classes and have their pictures taken for their campus ID cards. The $100 orientation fee will be assessed whether or not the student participates in orientation.

Students enrolled in the Health Information Technology and Coding & Reimbursement Specialist programs will receive an e-mail with login information for an online orientation course which is mandatory.

What are the advantages of a campus spending account?

Answer: 

The campus spending account is designed to give students an account to manage college expenses like books, supplies and special meals. CSA funds save time and hassle and can be spent at the Campus Stores, vending machines, dining facilities and with our campus partners. When you pay your bill, we recommend a CSA amount, but that amount can be completely deleted from your bill, or you can add to it. The minimum amount that can be added to the card is $10. The student photo ID card is swiped like a debit card when you make a purchase using CSA funds. As purchases are made, the account balance is reduced by that amount.

I have a special needs diet. Where can I eat?

Answer: 

Notify the Health Center staff about your special diet. A special diet must be submitted to the Dining Services management staff. They will review the diet with you and make sure we have the proper items available so that you get good nutrition. We can accommodate any kind of diet restriction. Communicating a special dietary need early is important to ensure proper nutrition is being met.

Do I have to have a meal plan?

Answer: 

All students who reside on campus must have a meal plan. Meal plan options can be designed to fit your budget.

FAQ Topics: 
Alumni & Friends: 

Which meal plan is best to choose?

Answer: 

Our meal plans are designed to fit different eating habits of individuals. The 18 meal per week plan is excellent for on-campus freshman and frequent diners. If a student goes home most weekends he/she may want to consider a nine meal per week plan. Students who eat frequently, but lightly, may choose a five meal per week plan with $500 in the declining balance portion. You can change your meal plan during the first two weeks of the Fall Semester. After that, the only time you can change your meal plan is when you process your bill for the Spring Semester. New students in the Spring Semester would have the first two weeks of the Spring Semester to change their meal plan.
