  • MEAL PLAN INFORMATION

    Each semester, all Wesleyan students are required to be on one of the meal plans offered for their class year. The meal plan is covered under the Residential Comprehensive Fee that was charged on the student account.

    For the 2020-2021 academic year only, the Freshman and Sophomores default meal plan is the new Premier plan which includes all meals offered as well as $ 250.00 in meal plan points. Sophomores may also select the all points meal plan for this academic year only*. Juniors and Seniors will default to the all points plan with no meals attched which contains $ 1980 in points per semester*, however they may also select the Premier plan instead.

    *We encourage all students who have access to select the all points plan to consider selecting the Premier plan instead given the restrictions we will have at Weshop and limited locations where points can be spent this Fall.

    If a student elects to choose the plan that is not their class year default, they must do so no later than 9/11/20 at 5:00 pm. Frosh cannot select a different plan.
