If you lower your plan, you must do so NO later than two weeks into an academic quarter. Please note: Dining Plan values on DePaul ID cards roll forward from academic quarter to academic quarter.
Current Student with Meal Plans-Your balance rolls over from Quarter to Quarter during the Academic year. We encourage you to use your meal plan regularly, because any balance remaining at the end of the Academic year is forfeited. Left over meal plan balances may not be applied to other University debts. Meal plan money must be used for purchases within the meal plan program. At the end of the Academic year, all unused meal plan balances will be forfeited. The Academic year ends June 8, 2018.
