The meal plans have a specified number of meals each week which reset every Saturday night at midnight. Unused meals will expire when the plan resets. Meal plan points expire at the end of the academic year. 
Dining Dollars and Bonus Dollars do not expire unless 24 months or 2 years of inactivity

When using meal swipes at our retail dining locations, like Campus Center Dining (food court) or Ba-Le, each meal swipe has a value of $5.50. Refunds and credits cannot be given for purchases under $5.50. However, students can use a combination of meal swipes and cash to pay for their purchases. For example, if a student buys lunch at the Campus Center and the cost is $6.00, they may use one meal swipe and $0.50 in cash. Multiple meals can be used to purchase a meal at our retail dining locations. One meal can be used each meal period at Hale Aloha Cafe and Gateway Cafe for either eat in or take out.  Also, you may only use a meal swipe for yourself, if you want to purchase a meal for a friend you will be able to use points or Dining Dollars at door price.

Example: A person who purchases plan B can use up to 14 meals at any meal period throughout the week at our resident dining locations. They can also choose to use their meals at one of our retail locations. Meals used at our retail dining locations will have a value of $5.50. Anything above $5.50 can be paid for with the points that come with a meal plan or with cash. On Saturday after dinner, any meals not used will expire. Sunday will begin with a new set of meals.
