First Year Residential Students
First Year residential students are required to purchase the Unlimited Meal Plan and are not eligible to request a meal plan change. This requirement is included in the terms & conditions of the Housing Agreement. If you have questions about your plan, please contact us at UCFood@uc.edu.
If you are a first year student with special circumstances that affect your use of the dining centers, you may be eligible to complete a petition request. Petitions to be released from the Meal Plan must be received by the Housing Office by the dates specified in the Housing Agreement to be considered for the following semesters. Release from the meal plan is considered for financial and dietary concerns. Dietary issues include medical or religious concerns. The Medical Documentation form included in the petition packet must be completed and submitted by your physician. Other release requests with appropriate documentation will be considered on an individual basis.
Upper-class and Commuter Students
Students who are eligible to purchase a Campus Dining Pass plan and would like to request a change to their plan can complete the meal plan change request form. The deadline to request a change is the first day of meal plan service.
