What happens if I have M&G or Meals left at the end of the semester?

For Mandatory Resident students, M&G dollars transfer from the Fall to Spring semester and over the summer.  Any dollars not used by the conclusion of summer session 2016 (summer session 2017 for Fall 2016 residents) are forfeited. All accounts are reset at the conclusion of summer session 2016. 

If you are a Voluntary/Commuter (includes mandatory students that add on M&G after using the allotted amount from the mandatory dining plan) dining plan student, M&G Dollars transfer from semester to semester until you graduate from the university.  

All M&G Dollars must be spent prior to graduation, any unused dollars prior to graduation will be forfeited. M&G Dollars may also be forfeited if there is no use on the account for six months or longer.

Can I treat a friend to a meal on my plan?

Depending on the dining plan you select, there are options for guest passes. Guest passes allow you to pay for your friend or family member with your dining plan. You can also treat a friend using your M&G Dollars, Pitchfork ID MasterCard® Check Card, cash or credit card.

What is a guest meal/pass?

The Unlimited, 14 Meals per Week, and the 8 Meals per Week (12 Meals per Week for Barrett dining plans) dining plans have guest meals. The guest meals are allotted per semester, however are deducted from your overall meals.

Guest meals are not additional meals. It is recommended to spread out the guest meals equally throughout the semester so that it does not affect your weekly meal allowance. If you decide to use your guest meals, it is recommended to use four guest meals per week on the Unlimited Meal Plan, two guest meals per week on the 14 Meals per Week Plan and one Meal per Week on the 8 Meals per Week Plan (12 Meals per Week for the Barrett dining plans). If the guest meals are not used based on the recommendation, this may result in a decrease of the weekly meal allowance for the semester.

How do I increase password security?

Your password should be at least 8 characters that include upper and lower case characters, numbers, and symbols. You should always use a unique password for each website you use; that way, if one account gets compromised, the rest are safe. Other ways to ensure the security of your password include:

    • If passwords must be written down on a piece of paper, store the paper in  a secure place and destroy it when it is no longer needed.

    • Never share passwords with anyone.

    • Change passwords immediately if they may have been compromised.

    • Be careful about where passwords are saved on computers. Some dialog boxes present an option to save or remember a password. Selecting this option poses a potential security threat.

How do I use variants?

Have your food your way! Choose from our variant options to customize your meal exactly how you want it. Please note any charges that might be associated with adding additional variants to your meal.

American Express Credit Card Users
