Meal Plans

Meal Plan Basics

Our meals are offered in an all-you-care-to-eat format. Choosing a balanced meal from the many options we offer gives you a terrific value. All students living on campus are required to have a meal plan. We serve 23 meals per week for Fall 2015 & Spring 2016. Flex Dollars are dining dollars that are added to the meal plan for students to use at all dining locations. Flex dollars are per semester and do not rollover from semester to semester.

Remember—unused meals do not carry over from week to week, so be sure to eat most of your meals before the week ends. Meals start over on the following Monday.

Eagle Express Account
The Eagle Express Account is a declining balance program that works like a credit card by allowing you to make purchases at the W.G. Pearson Dining Hall, Faculty Staff Dining Room or Eagles Nest Food Court by deducting from the amount that you deposit using your Eagle Card.

Anyone can add money to your Eagle Card-students, faculty and staff – as long as your deposit is more than $5.00. To make a deposit stop by the Eagle Card Office, Room 117, Lee Biology Building from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday to complete an application. You can also mail in your deposit or you can apply by phone to (919) 530-5010. Deposits can be in the form of cash, check, Visa or MasterCard.
