Students on a meal plan also receive a food cash account to which they can add money to throughout the semester to use for additional meals, guest meals and in Retail Operations. Both the 5-day and 7-day meal plans have the option to upgrade to a "plus" plan. These plus plans include $100 on your Food Cash Account.
When using your food cash account at any of the Retail Retail Operations on campus, students receive a 10 percent discount on all purchases.
Food Service entrances have computerized readers that will scan either your hand or your MSU student ID (Cat Card). As a valid meal pass holder, you are granted unlimited access to any of the three dining halls on campus. Without a Cat Card or valid hand scan*, you will not be admitted to the dining hall. All students participating in the meal plan can have their hands measured and recorded at the Cat Card Office. If you have questions about your meal plan, contact the Residence Life Office in the Hedges Complex at 406-994-4961.
*Note: Hand scanning is an optional program that is designed for your convenience. No fingerprint information is taken. The system matches a photo of your hand to your ID, Cat Card, and GID number.
You may request a sack lunch from the dining hall cashier for a $5.00 charge. Requests should be placed with the dining hall manager 24-hours in advance.
Sack lunches are included in your meal plan at no cost if you have a conflict (class schedule or involved in athletics) that prohibits you from eating in the dining halls during lunch hours of operation. Printed schedule is required for approval.
If your roomate or friend has a birthday during the school year, order a decorated birthday cake from Food Services for free. Place your order with the cashier at the dining hall you normally dine at 24 hours before you wish to pick it up. Only one cake will be prepared per person per school year, and must be ordered within the week of the actual birthday. Birthday cakes are prepared fresh at the Fat Cat Bakery.

If you are ill and cannot come to the dining hall to eat, you have another student pick up a tray of food to be taken to your room. The student picking up the food must present both his/her Cat Card as well as yours when entering the dining hall. Your card number will be taken by the cashier. Any items not returned (silverware, china, or glassware), will be billed to your MSU account.
For students with an on-campus meal plan, guest meals may be charged to their food cash account for a discounted rate.

**Students requesting the discount rate must have a valid meal pass.

MEAL PLAN PRECAUTIONS
Lost cards are replaced for $15. You will be instructed to get a new ID at the CatCard office in the SUB. Your meal plan is non-refundable. You are encouraged to treat your CatCard like a credit card. If someone else is found using your ID, you will be charged for the meals eaten by that person. Report any lost cards immediately. Your ID number can then be invalidated, preventing someone else from using it.
Should you lose or have a problem with your meal plan, please go to the in the Cashier's Office in the Hedges Complex.

Students living off campus can purchase a commuter meal plan from University Food Services.
* Each Sunday you are credited with a new package of meals depending on the plan you have chosen. There are no refunds given for unused meals. The meal plan week runs Sunday morning through Saturday evening.
