Meal Plans

What is the difference between the 7 day and 5 day all access plans?

The 7 day plan includes unlimited access to the Caf Dining Hall all week with a small amount of Panther Bucks to use in the C-Stores and Subway. The 5 day plan offers unlimited access to the Caf Dining Hall Monday–Friday and a larger amount of Panther Bucks. Panther Bucks may be used at any time during the semester.

Can I change my meal plan?

Yes. For the first two weeks of each semester, you can change your plan simply by contacting the Student Accounts Office. Your change must meet minimum meal plan requirements.

Can I treat a friend to a meal on my plan?

Yes, you can! While only you can use the meal swipe on your meal plan, you can use you Panther Bucks to treat a friend to a meal at any of our campus dining locations.

What do I do if my Panther Bucks run low?

Simple, just add to your account! You can use cash, check, money order, or credit card. When you want to replenish your Panther Bucks, just contact the Student Account Office 205-226-7871 or visit us online at www.bscdining.com. For every $100 you add, we’ll give you an extra $10 to spend.
