Points

Points are a credit added to your meal plan. This credit may be used at any Campus Dining Services location. Unused points at the end of fall semester will carry over to spring semester. However, unused points at the end of spring semester will not carry over to the fall semester.

Gorlok Bucks

Gorlok Bucks require a separate contract and cost and are not part of the meal plan. Gorlok Bucks may be used at selected off-campus restaurants.  If used on-campus, the purchase will be tax free and be discounted for items purchased.  All balance bucks will be forfeited after 18 months of inactivity.  To purchase Gorlok Bucks, use the contract on the Important Forms website.

All students living in the residence halls and all first year students living on campus must purchase a meal plan for the entire year they reside on campus.
