We don’t expect everyone to know how their eating schedule is going to work out when you get onto campus. As such, students are allowed to switch their meal plans during the first ten days of each semester.
All meal plans changes must be completed by the end of the add/drop period (ten days into the semester.) There will be no charge or billing proration for a meal plan changed within this time period.
Here is a break down of our meal plans:
|7 (not available for residents)
If you’re on a meal plan during Fall 2017 and are registered to return for the Spring 2017 semester, your meal plan will automatically roll over to your account for use in the Spring.
Meal plan changes will open the week of December 1st and will continue through the last day of add/drop on January 17th.
Any unused Pirate Bucks will transfer to your Spring meal plan.
Commuters: this applies to you, too! If you do not wish to rollover your meal plan, please contact our office at 973-761-9172 so we may remove it from your account.
Twice in the fall semester and once in the spring semester, your RA will come around to your room and ask you to sign a large roster acknowledging that you are, indeed, living where our software says you’re supposed to be living. But why?
These rosters, called “Verifications” are crucial to assuring accurate billing of your student account. They also serve as a back-up roster to see if anyone has taken it upon themselves to switch rooms without permission. (Note: students who are found to have changed rooms without going through the proper HRL process will be held judicially responsible.) For safety’s sake, it’s so important that we know who’s supposed to be in which bed. If there were ever an emergency in your room, we’d need to know exactly who we’re looking for.
Sometimes there’s a bonus question on verifications. This time we’re asking if you plan to return to housing for the Spring 2017 semester. While your answer to this question isn’t contractual or binding for next semester, it helps us plan for how many vacant beds we can expect to offer to incoming transfers or January admitted students.
Thanks for signing verifications, and thanks to the RAs who get them completed in such a quick turnaround!
