Selecting the right meal plan for me
When a student is awarded financial aid, their award is budgeted for the Basic Meal Plan.  If you have any doubt about what size plan to select, you may want to select a smaller plan.  Additional money can always be added to your chosen meal plan.  Unused points are not refundable.

Deadlines for Changing the Meal Plan Choice for the Coming Term
A meal plan can be changed only during specific periods and only for the coming term. 
Fall Plan: July 30, 2014
January Plan: December 12, 2014

To change a meal plan, log into MyElmhurst, then MyHousing and MyDining and follow the directions.

Meal Plan for resident students in College Houses and Apartments
Apartment residents may purchase an optional Apartment Meal Plan. Apartment Meal Plans are for the full academic year and must be used up by the end of the academic year. All residents may add points to the meal plan by going online to TouchNet, or by going to the Office of Student Financial Services to pay with cash or with their student account credit balance.
