Commuter Meal Plan

Effective Fall 2015 - Spring 2016 (not available Summer 2016)

The Commuter Meal Plans are available to students (non-resident hall occupants only) and employees.

The cost of the plans are as follows:

2 Meals per Week Plan - $200 per semester (works out to $6.25 per complete meal*)

5 Meals per Week Plan - $450 per semester (works out to $6.00 per complete meal*)

* Complete meal includes soup, salad, entree, sides, fountain drink and dessert (varies for breakfast). Great value!

The Commuter Meal Plan operates on a weekly declining balance and does not roll over for unused meals. Meals can only be spent on the food that is made on the premises. The meals are counted Friday through Thursday. If you run out of meals before Thursday, you will get a new set of meals to use beginning on Friday morning. Meal plans are not transferable and may not be used for purchase by anyone other than the card holder.

Meal plans are for use at the Rider Diner located on the Prescott campus.
