In order for our food services department to reconcile negative balances, students will no longer be allowed to charge meals beginning May 1st , 2017. Currently our charging policy allows a grace period of up to five days of meals if their accounts are negative and an alternate snack is offered temporarily once the grace period has expired and the account still has not been funded. Please be certain student cafeteria accounts are sufficiently funded in order for them to receive a meal.
