In order to meet your campus dining needs, we have designed the following meal plans for the 2012 - 2013 academic year. If you need to purchase a meal plan, or if you would like to make a change to the plan you have already selected, simply contact the Student Accounts Office x1394.
How the Meal Plan Works
Once you have selected a meal plan, the appropriate dollar amount will be credited to your meal plan account on your Hill Card. You will then use your Hill Card to make purchases in the Dining Commons, The Hill and Holy Cross Center. These purchases are debited from your meal plan account. This system is similar to using a debit card for your checking account. All the food items obtained while passing through the serving areas are totaled on a cash register and debited from your meal plan account.
Throughout the year, you should be checking your meal plan balance so that you can best monitor your spending. There are three ways to check your balance:
If you have any questions regarding how the meal plan works, or need assistance in deciding which plan is best for you, stop by the Dining Services Office located at the Commons, or call our office at (508) 565-1888. We will be happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
Choosing a Meal Plan
When choosing a meal plan, some things to keep in mind are:
Once the semester is under way, you should check the weekly posted balance guidelines. These guidelines help you decide if you are on the correct meal plan. If you feel you need to be on a different plan, you can make that change at any time during the first semester.
Meal Plan Policies and Procedures
All resident students are required to be on a meal plan. All resident students are automatically assigned to Meal Plan C; however, students may contact the Student Accounts Office and select a different meal plan that better meets their needs. Resident students may opt for a different meal plan at any time during the year, except for the final month of each semester.
Each year, the Vice President of Student Affairs and the Financial Vice
President will determine the meal plan balances and options. These will be
printed in the annual Student Guide to Dining Services brochure and the
Commuter students are not required to be on a meal plan; however, commuter students may add money to their Discretionary (Hill Card) account for this purpose.
Periodically, the College will review meal plans to ensure the students are on the most efficient plan. If it is determined that students are in a higher meal plan than their usage calls for, the students will be notified of that imbalance and informed that they will be automatically dropped down to a lower plan. Any funds that remain from the meal plan change will be credited to their Discretionary Hill Card account.
Unused balances will carry over from the fall semester to the spring semester. Unused balances cannot be carried over from one school year to the next and are non-refundable.
Students may request a special accommodation for medical purposes. Please visit the Office of Disability Services website at www.stonehill.edu/ODS.xml for information regarding medical requests for meal plan accomadations.
