Purchasing a Meal Plan
If you will be living in college-owned housing, your meal plan was selected as part of your housing contract and will automatically be added to your tuition bill. Requests to change your meal plan board option must be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include student name, ID number, current plan, and the plan you wish to change to (19 or 14).
For more information about the housing contract contact Residence Life.
Students who will not be living in college-owned housing can request a Fall 2015 meal plan starting June 18, 2015 through the SIS. Your meal plan will be added to your tuition bill.
A valid Penn College ID card is required for use of your meal plan. Your account information is stored on the magnetic stripe on the back of your card. You present your ID card to the Dining Services cashier, who will swipe the card to transfer purchases to your meal plan account.
You are responsible to protect the security of your card. ID cards are nontransferable; you may not "lend out" your card to others. Cards that are used by someone other than the cardholder will be confiscated; and disciplinary action may be taken.
Lost or stolen cards should be reported immediately to Dining Services. This can be done on the SIS or by calling 570-327-4767.
You can check your account history and current balance on the SIS or by stopping into the Dining Services office.
Add-ons to an existing account can be done anytime throughout the semester. Additions can be made with a credit card through the SIS. You may also stop by the Dining Services Office to add funds to your plan.
- Flex dollars (minimum $25) - option available for Board Plan account holders only.
- Declining balance dollars - option available to Declining Balance Plan account holders only.
Declining Balance Plans
Balances at the end of each semester will be refunded if the Declining Balance account has more than $10.
Board Plan Flex Dollars
Unused flex dollars will only be refunded at the end of each semester, if additional funds were added to the account during the semester and if the account has more than $10.
Declining Balance meal plan refunds will be processed through your PCT OneCard at the end of each semester. You must activate your card and select a refund preference or we will not be able to process your refund. For more information about the PCT OneCard, visit the Bursar's Office Refund FAQs Web page.
