FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Toggle ItemWhat is Dining Dollars?
Dining dollars is both the name of meal plan currency and it is also a meal plan itself. We try to delineate these by capitalizing the meal plan (ex. Dining Dollars) and using lower case for the currency. (ex. dining dollars).
The dining dollars of a meal plan can be used at many locations across campus. You may reload more dining dollars onto your meal plan (except for the Cannon Block of Meals meal plan). Reload amounts automatically have a 10% discount. You get 55 dining dollars for loading on $50.
Toggle ItemWhat meal plan money can rollover?
Only the dining dollars of a meal plan can rollover from previous agreements. Meals or blocks of meals don’t rollover.
Toggle ItemWill I need to use all of my dining dollars by the end of every semester?
If you have a Fall-Winter Contract the dining dollars will immediately transfer from the Fall to the Winter semester. As long as your meal plan contract is in effect, your dining dollars will roll over, day to day, week to week, and month to month.
Toggle ItemWhat happens to rollovers if I leave BYU during the Spring/Summer?
Dining dollars can rollover from school year to school year if you get a meal plan eligible to hold dining dollars at the beginning of the following Fall Semester.
Toggle ItemWhat happens to rollovers if I need to take a leave of absence (i.e. going on a mission)?
If you have a BYU approved deferment for school (a mission, etc.), your extra dining dollars will rollover if you have an eligible meal plan to receive rollovers upon your return.

Toggle ItemIs there a deadline to buying a meal plan?
No, there is no deadline to buy a meal plan. Helaman Halls students sign up for a meal plan in their contracting process.
Toggle ItemWhen is the best time to buy a meal plan?
We obviously encourage you to buy a meal plan at the beginning of the semester so you have the benefits for the whole semester/term but there are a few things to consider.
For all meal plans besides EZ Dining and Cannon Block of Meals: if you buy the meal plan in the middle of an agreement period, the meal plan will be prorated to the time when you bought the meal plan.
For the EZ Dining meal plan: it is better to buy this plan at the beginning on a month because regardless of when you buy this plan you will receive the full amount for your first month on the start date of your plan.
For Cannon Block of Meals: regardless of when you start, the end date will always be at the end on the Summer Term.
Toggle ItemWhat do I do if I want to switch plans?
It’s easy, before a meal plan agreement starts, you can switch meal plans by just selecting another meal plan through MyDiningAccount. After the Add/Drop deadline you will need to send in a petition through MyDiningAccount.
If you have EZ Dining, you can change the end date on your meal plan at any time. Then after the end date when your meal plan ends, you can switch to another meal plan.
