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 2019-2020 academic year are:

Summer 2020

May 15, 2020 – August 18, 2020
Deadline to change your meal plan is August 18, 2020.

Meal plan dates for the 2020-2021 academic year are:

Fall 2020

August 19, 2020 – December 16, 2020
Deadline to change your meal plan is August 28, 2020.

Spring 2021

January 7, 2021 – May 12, 2021
Deadline to change your meal plan is January 16, 2021.

Meal plans end at the close of each term. Any remaining funds cannot be refunded or transferred with the exception of fall-term Community Meal Plans, which will roll over to the spring term only.

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.
