Proposed 2021-2022 Meal Plan Options - These rates are subject to approval by the Minnesota State Board of Trustees.  The board historically takes action on student rates and fees by late June prior to student arrival in August.

Many dining options are available to students. Each plan has two components: a meal plan and dining dollar plan. Meal plans determine the number of meals available for either the week or the semester. Each meal plan will receive three guest meals per semester.  A dining dollar plan is like a prepaid debit account that can be used at any of the campus dining facilities.

Deadlines apply for conversions: November 30th for fall semester and April 30th for spring semester.
