TERMS & CONDITIONS: FALL 2017 - SPRING 2018
MEAL PLAN PROVISIONS:
Your USF ID, which serves as your meal card, is required for all transactions – no exceptions. All meal plans starting in the Fall for First Year students are a two semester commitment (Fall 2017 and Spring 2018), Dining Dollar Only plans are not a meal plan. Meal plans for First Year students admitted for Spring 2018 are only a one semester commitment.
If your USF ID card is lost or stolen, you must immediately report it to USF Dining Services (813-974-4499) to place ID on hold or you may place on hold at usf.edu/Bullbucks. USF Dining is not responsible for any meals missed due to lost or stolen USF ID cards. You may be eligible for a temporary card issued by the meal plan office located in the MSC room 1502. The card would be valid only at dining halls for 5 days from when it was issued. You must return the temporary card or you will be charged $10.00.
FIRST YEAR MEAL PLAN:
As part of your first year experience at USF, students who are residing on campus, are to select a meal plan prior to moving into their residence hall or on-campus apartment, and may select an Open Access, Any15, or BullBlock 165 meal plan. (Summer residency is not included as a previous term of residence and does not exempt a student from the meal plan requirement for new residents). Exceptions are transfer students with 12 or more college attended credit hours (dual enrollment does not apply.) First year students who move on campus after the start of the semester have one week to select an Open Access, Any 15, or BullBlock 165 meal plan. Default- resident will be assigned Open Access.
REMINDER: All first year residents’ plans are a TWO SEMESTER COMMITMENT for Fall admits.
You may upgrade your account at any time. A grace period is provided each semester during which you may change the prorated value of your Residential Meal Plan to another Residential Meal Plan. Fall admits may change within the Open Access, Any 15, or BullBlock 165. (Fall grace period: 8/21/17 - 8/25/17 at 4pm. Spring grace period: 1/8/18 – 1/12/18 at 4pm). Meal Plan changes must be completed in person at the USF Dining Services Meal Plan Office located in MSC 1502.
It is the meal plan holder’s responsibility to notify USF Dining of the request to cancel a meal plan by the end of the grace period unless withdrawing from the University. All cancellations must go to the USF Dining Committee for review and decision. If a student does not receive housing or cancels a housing assignment, this does not automatically cancel a meal plan contract. Exceptions: Students not returning for Spring semester need to bring verification of registration withdrawal or transfer to the Meal Plan Office by the end of the Fall semester. Non-payment does not cancel your meal plan.
Any unused Dining Dollars from the Fall semester will roll over to the Spring semester with the purchase of a Spring Meal Plan (excludes Dining Dollar Only plans). If the account holder does not wish to participate in a Spring Meal Plan (returning & off-campus students only) any unused Dining Dollars will be forfeited at the end of the Fall semester: December 16, 2017. Unused Spring Dining Dollars will be forfeited at the end of the semester: May 5th, 2018. It is the customer’s responsibility to monitor their Dining Dollar balance. This can be done by downloading the MYUSF App and selecting the Bull Bucks button (this will show Dining Dollars balance). ***Dining Dollar only plans are valid only for the semester purchased.
All website purchases are considered to be final. Exceptions will be made for processing errors. All refunds for processing errors will be refunded to the credit card used for the purchase.
For your convenience all Spring meal plans will be automatically activated for you to enjoy beginning January 6th, 2018. Should you wish to make any changes to your plan, you must come to our office during the appropriate grace period (see section: Grace Period).
