Changes and Exemptions

Changing Your Meal Plan

The deadline to change a meal plan is the first Friday of an academic semester.

The deadline to change a meal plan for Fall 2022 is September 2nd at 5pm. Requests submitted after this date and time will not be accepted. 

To change your meal plan, login to the housing portal and select “Add or Change Meal Plan”. From there, you will be able to view all meal plans you are eligible for and make a change to your meal plan selection. 


Meal Plan Exemptions

A meal plan is obligatory for every student who lives in on-campus housing. Requests for exceptions to the meal plan will only be considered for a documented medical or psychological need, or for a medically prescribed diet that Bon App├ętit personnel cannot provide. Coursework and/or employment schedules, finances, or diets recommended by someone other than a medical doctor or licensed therapist will not qualify for an exception or alteration to the meal plan requirement. Food service personnel are amenable to discussing special provisions or substitutions to meet dietary requirements, significant scheduling conflicts or other individual food needs. Therefore, before you will be considered for an exception to the meal plan requirement, even with medical documentation, you must have met with and discussed the possibility of special provisions with Bon Appétit staff.

We ask that you contact Ryan Jensen, the General Manager of Bon Appétit at Lewis & Clark, before reaching out to campus living for additional meal plan exemption information.
