Meal Exchange Program
The Meal Exchange Program allows students to supplement a meal or purchase a-la-cart items using the meal equivalency rate.
Meal plans are intended for use during the breakfast/lunch or dinner/snack meal zones at the all-you-can-eat, buffet style N-Wing Restaurant. However, meal plans may also be used to purchase a-la-carte items from other on-campus dining locations using the Meal Exchange Program.
When a meal plan is purchased, the total number of meals and Dining Dollars are added to your Osprey Card. When purchasing a meal that is equal to the meal equivalency rate, it is deducted from the total number of meals in your plan. If a purchase is greater than the meal equivalency rate, one meal can be deducted and the remaining balance can be paid from Dining Dollars or other payment method. If the purchase is less than the meal equivalency rate, one meal can be deducted or it can be purchased with Dining Dollars or other payment method. Other payments include, cash, credit card or debit card, or from funds added to your Osprey Card. There is no refund or credit for meal deductions that are used to purchase meals less than the meal equivalency rate.
Meals are served in two time zones: Breakfast/Lunch and Dinner/Snack. Each meal served in a zone is assigned a meal equivalency rate. See below.
NOTE: Meal deductions can only be used at on-campus dining locations. Meals at Chris Gaupp are purchased online with cash, credit or debit card, dining dollars or from funds added to your Osprey Card.

|Zone 1: Breakfast/Lunch||6:00am - 3:30pm||$8.19|
