What meal plan do I have?

Purchase a Meal Plan

Kennesaw State’s award-winning meal plan program incorporates two convenient components with easy access on the KSU ID card: Meals and Dining Dollars. Meal plans can be used in both Stingers (Marietta) and The Commons (Kennesaw) and Dining Dollars can be used in any on-campus eatery. During the fall and spring semesters, a base-level meal plan will be automatically included for all full-time students and all on-campus residents. *

Meal plan requirements are based on two factors: the number of adjusted earned credit hours on a student’s transcript and whether or not the student lives on campus.

Requirements are as follows:

First-year residential students will automatically be assessed the Weekly8 plan, which includes 8 meals per week (Monday – Sunday) and $500 Dining Dollars. First-years residents have the option to switch to the Weekly10 plan (10 meals per week and $200 Dining Dollars) that would also satisfy the mandatory meal plan requirement and would provide two more meals per week with $200 Dining Dollars.

Meal plan requirements for full-time first year commuters, sophomores, juniors and residential seniors are listed below. There is no required meal plan for commuter seniors or graduate students.

*SPSU students that were actively enrolled during the Spring 2015 semester and had accrued 30 or more credit hours by the end of the Spring 2015 semester will not have a meal plan automatically included while actively they are enrolled at KSU unless they have a residential status on the Kennesaw campus.

Students who are not automatically assigned a meal plan are welcome to purchase a meal plan by completing a Meal Plan Contract or purchasing a plan from our convenient online store.
Full-time = Registered for 12 or more credit hours per semester / Part-time = Registered for fewer than 12 credit hours per semester
