If the person contracts after the first day of classes of the term for which he/she is contracting, the person will be charged from the date he/she signs the meal plan contract and purchases a meal plan until the end of the term. Meal service will begin with breakfast on the official first day of classes each semester and end with lunch on the last day of final exams for each semester. Meal service will be limited during Thanksgiving and Spring breaks. Meal service will not be available during Winter Break. The University shall not be responsible for any failure to provide meals in the event conditions exist not wholly within its control (e.g. Acts of God, fire, strikes, public disturbances, natural disasters, etc.).
