Student Meal Plans

A meal plan is an efficient and easy choice and will offer you convenience and flexibility to your dining experience at MSU. Meals can be used at all food services locations on campus, excluding Starbucks and the P.O.D. Convenience Store in Alumni Tower. Each time you make a purchase your account is reduced by one meal when on a meal plan. Funds for the University's meal plans are accessed using the contactless chip (flyBUY) portion of your EagleCard.

Selecting your Fall 2021 Meal Plan

Beginning Aug. 16, 2021, you must go to the EagleCard office (ADUC 127) to select or change your spring 2021 meal plan or to add BeakerBUCKs. The last day to change your meal plan is Monday, Aug. 23.

Students should be able to view complete Fall 2021 billing when they do their self-service scheduling.  Please confirm all charges including your meal plan.  If your meal plan is not correct please submit your order online at through Aug. 15, 2021.

Which MEal Plan is right for me?


Students enrolled in 12 or more credit hours with at least one class located on MSU’s main campus who do not select a meal plan are required to participate in MSU’s Dining Dollars Program, and will automatically have $100 in Flex charged to their bill to be used at campus dining locations. Dining Dollars/Flex are for campus dining locations only.

On-campus freshmen and sophomores (0-59 credit hours)

If you are under 21 years of age and unmarried, you are required to participate in a University Meal Plan and will automatically be enrolled in the Eagle 7 Weekly plan if you do not make a selection.

Juniors, Seniors and Graduate Students (60+ credit hours)

You may choose any plan or opt-out of the traditional meal plans. Please be aware that the $100 Flex Dining Dollars Program may reflect on all student billing, regardless of status or residency as long as the student has one class on the main campus.


What are BeakerBUCKS and Flex Dollars?

BeakerBUCKs is MSU's all-in-one account and is an option for all enrolled students and current employees. This includes non-traditional students and commuters. BeakerBUCKs are accepted at multiple locations across campus including Dining Services (six percent discount), University Store, Library, MSU Document Center, concessions, vending, copiers, printers and businesses/restaurants in the community.

All meal plan options come with additional Flex Dollars which can be used for additional purchases at all on-campus dining locations, including Starbucks and the P.O.D. Convenience Store in Alumni Tower. Flex Dollars are not accepted at the bookstore or any of the vending locations. If you use all of the Flex Dollars on your meal plan you have the option to add funds to your EagleCard ID. This amount will be put into a BeakerBUCKs account.

You must accept your Financial Responsibility Agreement (FRA) and payment plan via MyMoreheadState before your meal plan or BeakerBUCKs order will be applied to your student account and activated for use. All students must submit meal plan orders for the Fall term. The spring term will be covered by the fall/spring meal plan contract unless a student wishes to change their meal plan or their default status for the Eagle 7 Weekly changes to junior status which then would enroll them in the Dining Dollars Program.

Fall Rollover Flex Dollars

Fall Rollover Flex Dollars Any Flex Dollars remaining on your card at the end of the Fall term will carry over to the Spring term (this includes the $100 Flex/Dining plan). Rollover Flex Dollars will be displayed in your online account as "Fall Rollover Flex," and will be available in the spring when Spring term meal plans are activated. When you charge an expense to your Flex account, funds will be used from your rollover, once your rollover has been used funds will then begin to come from the current semester. Flex does NOT carry from Spring to Fall, only Fall to Spring. All unused flex at the end of a Spring semester will be lost. Visit the EagleCard Office (127 ADUC) for more information.
