On-campus students with fewer than 60 earned credit hours are required to purchase one of the 5 or 7 Day All Access Plan options. Students who meet this criteria and do not elect a meal plan will be assigned the basic 5 Day All Access plan. This plan is a non-refundable, non-transferable meal plan. Students can upgrade to a plan that better suits their dining needs at any time.
All Commuter students and residential students with 60 or more earned credit hours are required to have, a minimum of, the 300 Dining Dollar plan. These students may also upgrade to a plan that better suits their dining needs at any time.
At the end of the academic year students on the 300 Dining Dollar plan only, may request unused funds be refunded to their student account. Refund requests must be made via EKU Direct, between May 15 and June 15, and the unused funds will be returned to the account holder.

Meal plans are a one semester commitment and therefore must be chosen each semester. If a meal plan is not selected, a minimum mandatory plan will be automatically assigned according to the student's status as outlined above.
You have the first two weeks of each semester to downgrade your meal plan. However, a student can upgrade their plan at any time during the semester if they feel their current plan is not sufficient for their dining needs.
