Knox College Dining
2 East South Street
Galesburg, IL 61401-4999
Knox meal plans are designed with an emphasis on flexibility. Five student board plans, two student commuter plans, and one faculty/staff plan are available. All students are expected to participate in a board plan. Exceptions have been made, but this is not common. Additional spending power may be added to any student account with the purchase of Flex Dollars at any time during the academic year.
The meal plan contract is for the current academic year only, and each student is required to complete a new meal plan contract each academic year. You may change your meal plan at any time through the second Friday at the start of each term by simply completing a new contract in the Dining Services Office. Meal plans are not available during winter break, spring break, or summer vacation.
Each Premier Plan consists of a specific number of meals and Dining Dollars, which are non-transferable. Board meals are for personal use and for the times when there is a need to entertain visiting family or friends. Dining Dollars may be spent like cash at any dining location. Meals and dining dollars can be used whenever and however you like each term. Unused meals and Dining Dollars do not "roll" from term to term. All Premier Plans are identically priced.
|Academic Year 2018 - 2019|
|Premier Board Plan — $1,643/term|
Price per meal is calculated by subtracting dining dollars from the meal plan price and dividing that amount by the number of meals in each meal plan.
Commuter Plans are restricted to students who are not on a board plan and are living off campus. Each Commuter Plan consists of a specific number of meals which are non-transferable. The meals can be used whenever and however you like each term. Unused meals do not "roll" from term to term. Each Commuter Plan is individually priced based on the number of meals.
|Academic Year 2018 - 2019|
|Commuter Plan 50||50||$471|
|Commuter Plan 25||25||$270|
Add convenience and flexibility to your student account, whether you are on a board plan or not, by purchasing Flex Dollars in $25 increments at any time during the academic year. Purchase options: cash, check, automatic billing each term by completing the Flex Dollar section on a meal plan contract, or purchase online. To purchase Flex Dollars with cash or check, visit the Dining Services office. Students may update their meal plan contract, including Flex Dollar automatic billing, the first two weeks of every term. All funds deposited into a Flex Dollar account may be spent throughout the academic year but must be spent before the end of the current academic year. Flex Dollars are not refundable and do not "roll" from year to year. This program allows all students to use their ID cards to access the funds deposited versus carrying cash to make purchases in any dining location as well as in the Bookstore, at copy machines throughout campus, and at specific laundry facility locations.
Faculty, staff, and organizations may also purchase Flex Dollars in $25 increments at any time during the year. Purchase options: cash, check or purchase online. All funds deposited may be spent throughout the time of employment at Knox or as long as an organization exists and will "roll" from year to year. Flex Dollars are not refundable when employment ceases or an organization dissolves. This allows all to use ID cards to access the funds (the same as students) versus carrying cash to make purchases in any dining facility, the Bookstore and at copy machines throughout the campus.
