Can I change my meal plan at any time?Any changes to meal plans must be made within the first 2 weeks of the semester. Meals, meal exchanges and guest passes do not carry over each semester.
What do I do if I lose my student ID card?The student ID card provides each student access to meal plans as well as McDaniel Bucks. Lost or stolen cards can be replaced for a $35 replacement fee at the ID Office located in the Hoover Library.
What are McDaniel Bucks?McDaniel Bucks are a safe and easy way to buy books, supplies, food on campus and at many off-campus locations. Go to for more information.
Are guest meal passes in addition to the meal plan?Guest meal passes allow students to bring a guest to the Englar Dining Hall. They are included in the meal plan number (not in addition to the meal plan).
What are meal exchanges?Students have the option to eat in the Pub instead of Englar Dining Hall. Meal exchanges are assigned per plan. Unused meal exchanges do not roll over into the next semester.
How can I use meal exchanges for catering?Meals from meal plan (not meal exchanges) can be donated to pay for catering events, picnics and bagged lunches (for those days you don’t have time to sit down and eat ). Meal exchange forms are available in the Dining Hall and on this website.
