HOW DO I CHOOSE A DINING PLAN?
Consider your eating habits and choose a plan that best suits your lifestyle. A lower level would be appropriate if you are a light eater, or someone who may eat only one meal per day and an occasional snack. If you are a heavy eater, an athlete or someone who eats three meals a day, snacks a lot, and rarely leaves campus, a higher level is recommended. If you run out of money on your card, you can:
HOW DOES THE PLAN WORK?
The dining plan cost includes an enrollment fee of $415 per semester to cover overhead costs for providing a dining service operation in the Brickstone Grill and Eatery and the Ranger Card administrative fee. You will realize the greatest value from your plan by eating in the Brickstone Grill and Eatery because you receive a 50% discount from regular prices at this location. Dining dollars may be used at other campus dining locations at full price.

DINING PLAN ACCESS
The Ranger Card is UW-Parkside's official identification card and is required for access to your Dining Plan. To pay for a meal, you simply hand your Ranger Card to the cashier, who will swipe your Ranger Card and the dollar amount will automatically be deducted from the balance. If at any time you would like to check the balance of your account, you can have the cashier check your balance, stop by the Cashiers office or check on line.
When you select your meal plan at the beginning of the year, you are selecting for the entire academic year. You can change your plan for the upcoming semester before November 15th. Any money not used in the fall semester will automatically be carried over for spring semester. Any unused money at the end of spring semester will be forfeited.
