Meal Plans & More
Students attending college for their first full year (excluding transfers) are required to purchase a Bison Unlimited Experience plan. Any student can purchase a Bison Unlimited Experience plan. The Village Plan is for Village residents only. Meal Plans cannot be adjusted (dropped or changed) after the first week of school has concluded. If, however, the Student utilizes the meal plan at all during such first week of classes prior to cancellation, the Student will be responsible for paying the cost of the meal plan for such entire week.
If you purchase a meal plan, dining dollars are attached to the plan. Bison Cash may be purchased as an addition to Dining Dollars and can be refilled throughout the year. Dining Dollars and Bison Cash are for on-campus Lipscomb Dining locations only. Dining dollars carry over from Fall to Spring semester with the purchase of a Spring meal plan but expire at the end of the Spring semester. Bison Cash will rollover from semester to semester and year to year until graduation. Neither Bison Cash nor Dining Dollars are refundable.
For your convenience, as soon as you are assigned a room, you are automatically assigned the appropriate meal plan. You only need to select a new meal plan if you would like to make a change.
