ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • Every meal plan includes kosher, vegetarian and halal options at no additional cost.

  • Meals do not carry over from semester to semester.  Munch Money balances roll over from summer to fall, and fall to spring, if a student remains enrolled.  Any Munch Money remaining at the end of the spring semester will be forfeited. 
  • All students on a meal plan can purchase additional Munch Money at any time (no minimum required).
  • Students on a block meal plan can purchase additional meals at the SUNYCard office.  Meals cannot be added to Unlimited or the Munch Money meal plans.
  • Any bonus Munch Money, if applicable, will be added approximately 3 business days after the last day of the meal plan change/drop period.  
  • Meal plans are activated when residence quads open for occupancy and end when quads close.  However, during times when the all-you-care-to-eat quad dining rooms are closed but the residence quads are open, Munch Money can be used in retail locations.
