  • School Calendar July 8, 2015

    Many colleges require students to have a meal plan, especially if they live on campus. Meal plans vary among colleges, but most will give students a certain number of dining hall meals per week. Students may also be able to add flex dollars to use at the campus food court or other locations. The larger the school is, the greater flexibility students may have.

    Students who choose their meal plan carefully may be able to cut college costs by selecting the plan that is best for them, according to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).
