Meal Plans

Dining Services works hard to provide amazing meals for all students. You can find more information on their Dining Services page. 

When requesting accommodations for meal plans, please note the following:

  • Students must request meal plan accommodations within two weeks of each semester (except in cases of documented medical disabilities that require disability accommodation)
  • NO meal plan accommodations are based on vegetarianism or veganism. Vegetarian and vegan options are available for every meal according to the dietary requirements of vegetarians and vegans.
  • A meal plan accommodation cannot be justified by financial hardship. Students should contact the Office of Financial Aid with any financial inquiries
  • Meal plans will not be exempt for students who live in the Residence Halls without kitchens
  • Meal plan accommodation requests are not guaranteed. Decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis with review of the Exemptions Committee. Any submissions after the set deadline will not be heard until the following semester.

Process:

  • Applications are only reviewed twice each academic year. At the beginning of each Fall and Spring semester
  • Once applications are completed, the Exemptions Committee will have 5-10 business days to review applications and complete a decision. Meal plans are still in effect and should be utilized. If a Coe student is approved, billing will be adjusted to the date of application submission. 
  • Each applicant will receive a Coe email of the decision.
