Meal plans are available to any person who has been admitted to and will be enrolled as a student on the IU Southeast campus.
Meal plans are voluntary.
Meal Plan Duration
The UDine Anytime is effective and binding for the full academic semester for the term indicated at the time of purchase. Plans begin the first day of the semester and continue through the last day of the semester finals for the term indicated at the time of purchase.
Students should purchase a meal plan each semester if a meal plan for the academic year is desired.
There is limited service during Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, Spring Break, and any day the campus is officially closed, i.e. snow days, etc.
If you are residing in our on campus housing, the UDine Anytime can be activated at the time of move-in and charges will be prorated based on your move-in date and a weekly rate.
The terms and conditions begin on the date of meal plan purchase.
You are expected to retain your meal plan for the full duration.
The UDine 500 balance will roll forward to the next semester.
If a CrimsonCard account with the UDine 500 has sustained no activity for a period of 12 months or more and has a positive balance, the account will be determined inactive and assessed a $3 monthly fee until one of the following occurs: (1) You use your CrimsonCard for payment; (2) the balance reaches zero (0); (3) after a period of 60 months a positive balance still remains in the account (greater than $15, see “Meal Plan Cancellations”), remaining funds are considered unclaimed property by the University and will be escheated to the state.
Meal Plan Usage and Carry-Over
Meal Plans are for the exclusive use of the plan holder and are not transferable.
UDine Anytime: No restrictions on the number of times one can swipe in the UC Food Court Monday through Friday. Excludes bottled beverages.
UDine Anytime cannot be used for bulk purchases, i.e. food in excess of what one person could consume in one setting.
Gus Bucks can be used anywhere the CrimsonCard is accepted.
Gus Bucks earned on the meal plan carry forward from the fall and spring semester and expire on the last day of finals of the Spring Semester.
Guest Meal Swipes are a part of the UDine Anytime plan and can be used for guests in the UC Food Court. The Meal Plan owner must always be present when using Guest Meal Swipe on their CrimsonCard for others.
Meal Swipes on the UDine Anytime plan cannot be used for another guest under any circumstance unless you are charging against your allocated Guest Meal Swipes. Guest Meal Swipes do not roll forward to the next semester.
The UDine 500 can be used for purchases at Subway in the Library Building and Papa John's located in the University Center Building but the 10% discount does not apply at that location.
In the case the CrimsonCard ID picture does not match the person presenting the CrimsonCard, the card will be confiscated and reported to IU Southeast Campus Police and the Office of Student Conduct.
Meal Plans cannot be used at any non-IU Southeast Food Services locations or vending machines. Meal Plans can only be used at the UC Food Court, University Grounds Coffee Shop, and the Subway located in the Library Building.
Meal Plan Biling and Payments
All charges for student meal plans not paid up front will be placed on the student’s bursar account and will be subject to the same payment deadlines and penalties as other university charges.
In the case of non-payment by the due date, meal plans can be deactivated, unless a payment plan has been arranged with the Office of the Bursar.
Payment of meal plan charges (including applicable buy-out fees) is not contingent upon receipt of financial aid monies or scholarships. In Meal Plan terms and conditions you are agreeing that you are responsible for all meal plan payments and charges not covered by financial aid assistance or scholarships.
Meal Plan Cancellations
A student can make a request for a meal plan cancellation only through the Office of the Bursar. Only the meal plan holder can cancel a meal plan, no other person or department can cancel a meal plan or request to cancel a meal plan on the student’s behalf unless extenuating circumstances prohibit the meal plan holder from cancelling a plan.
There is a $15.00 processing fee for cancellations. The UDine Anytime refund will be charged an automatic $300 and a weekly usage rate for the time remaining on the plan from the following Friday to the end of the current dining plan schedule.
The refund for the UDine 500 will be based upon usage and a $15.00 processing fee.
No cancellations, adjustments, or proration of any meal plan will be made during the final three weeks of each semester.
