Meal Plans

All meal plans are provided by Hospitality Services and administered by USCard Services. Residents of USC Housing will automatically be enrolled in a mandatory meal plan based on their university housing location and class standing. Students have the option to upgrade to another meal plan online prior to the change deadline.

If you are not required to have a meal plan, you may purchase one.

Meal plans are effective from your housing contract move-in date (please see dates below) — or the date you purchase an optional meal plan — until the end of the term.

Meal plan dates for the 2021-2022 academic year are:

Summer 2021

May 13, 2021 – August 12, 2021
Deadline to change your meal plan is August 12, 2021.

Fall 2021

August 13, 2021 – December 15, 2021
Deadline to change your meal plan is September 3, 2021.

Spring 2022

January 6, 2022 – May 11, 2022
Deadline to change your meal plan is January 27, 2022.

Meal plans end at the close of each semester with the exception of Community 25 and Community 50 plans end on the last day of the school year. Any remaining funds cannot be refunded or transferred, or sold.

You may change or purchase a meal plan online. Changes may result in a debit or credit to your student account.

Mandatory meal plans may not be canceled.
