How Do Meal Plans Work at UNCG?

Meal plans are divided into two components at UNCG:

  • Meals – Standard meal swipes can always be used to enter Fountain View Restaurant. Spartan Meals will be used by participating locations for additional combo options. For more details on those locations and options, please visit Spartan Dining.
  • Flex – Flex is a non-refundable stored value account on your SpartanCard which allows you to eat at UNCG.

Schedule for Additions/Changes

Please Note
“Add a Plan” refers to adding Flex / Meals to your card without an existing plan, while “Change a Plan” refers to replacing your current plan (less any Flex/Meals you have used). Meal plan changes start on June 1st.

Residential Students

  • Registration until the end of the first week of classes (Friday): Students are granted a single change to any eligible plan except “Flex Recharges.” Please note that residential changes are opened based on when housing application data is uploaded to UNCG’s main student information system. Residential students will be notified via email when the change period is open.
  • Second week of classes through signup end*: No changes are allowed. “Flex Recharges” may be added to your student bill via Genie, or Flex may be added directly using SpartanCard Online.

Commuter Students

  • Registration until the end of the first week of classes (Friday): Students are granted a single change to any eligible plan except “Flex Recharge.”
  • Second week of classes through signup end*: No changes are allowed. You may sign up for a new plan until the thesis filing deadline. “Flex Recharges” may be added to your student bill if you have an existing meal plan via UNCGenie, or Flex may be added directly using SpartanCard Online.

*The last day to add Flex Recharges typically ends on the last day to withdraw from a course without incurring a WF grade. This day varies slightly each semester. Contact the SpartanCard Center for further details.
