As of fall 2013, the university meal plan is required for all full-time undergraduate students at AUM. This completes the phase-in of a grade level each year until all full-time students have the plan.
The plan is convenient and easy. You will be billed automatically for the plan - $600 per semester if you are a full-time student living on campus and $100 per semester if you are a full-time student living off campus. The money will be loaded onto your Warhawk Card (your student ID), and you can use the card like a debit card in The Roost.
Dining Plan Exemptions
Ordinarily, the only allowable reasons for exemption from the required participation dining plan include:
A student who has a medical condition requiring a diet that cannot be met by The Roost may be exempt upon receiving the approval. Students should complete the Dining Plan Exemption Application then mail or fax it to the Auxiliary Services office. Please include a letter concisely and fully describing your dietary circumstances along with supporting documentation from a licensed medical physician. The physician must be an impartial individual who is not a family member. Students and physicians should avoid making requests for exemption based on conscious choice or medically unsubstantiated beliefs. Vegetarianism is not normally considered a valid reason for dining plan exemption.
A student whose religious beliefs impose dietary restrictions that cannot be met by The Roost may be exempted upon approval from the Senior Director of Auxiliary Services.
Students should complete the application form and mail or fax it to the Auxiliary Services Office. Please include a written explanation from your religious counsel.
Financial need is not an allowable reason for exemption from the Dining Plan.
