All students living in a residence hall are required to purchase a meal plan. You may change your meal plan until the end of the drop/add period of the fall semester, but after that time you cannot change your meal plan until the next academic year. All students will be assigned the minimum required meal plan option if no selection is made. If you would like to change your meal plan, you can do so through your BIC account under Housing Administrator.
If you are having trouble selecting a meal plan, here are a few suggestions: Try considering your daily routine...Do you eat three meals a day? Will your class schedule, studying, extracurricular activities and social events interfere with dining? Will you miss dinner due to employment or evening classes? Anticipating the answers to these and similar questions will help you to create a meal plan that best fits your lifestyle.

Declining Points are loaded onto the students ID card and it works much like a "check card". Declining Points do not roll over from semester to semester and must be used or those funds will be lost. Additional funds, called Bruin Bucks, can be billed to your student account up until the last day of drop/add. After that, they must be purchased through Belmont Central. Bruin Bucks roll over semester to semester until the students graduates and can be refunded if there is any left on the student's account upon graduation. Bruin Bucks can also be used at off campus locations.
