Meal Plans FAQ
What is FlexCredit?
FlexCredit is a flexible spending portion of your meal plan and can be used to purchase items at any of Florida Tech's food service operations. When you tell the cashier to take your purchase out of FlexCredit, your card will be run through the register, the amount will be deducted and your balance will be displayed.
What can I buy with FlexCredit?
Remember FlexCredit is part of your meal plan. It can be used for any food item at all of our locations! You can use FlexCredit in select vending machines, to buy food for friends, or purchase prepackaged retail items such as candy bars, packaged snacks, bottled beverages and frozen microwavable foods.
Can I use PDH Meals in the Panther Food Court, Rathskeller & Center Court?
No, PDH Meals can only be used in Panther Dining Hall. The FlexCredit portion of your meal plan may be used in the Rathskeller Pizza and Grill, Panther Grocery, Center Court and Panther Dining.
Can I share my meal plan with a friend?
No, meal plans are contracted with each individual student and cannot be transferred or shared with others. Cards used by anyone other than the registered cardholder will be confiscated. However, you can treat a friend to a meal at Panther Dining by using FlexCredit.
What happens to unused PDH Meals and FlexCredit?
Unused PDH Meals from the U1 Anytime 100, C4 Commuter Anytime 50 and S3 Summer Anytime 50 and unused FlexCredit will roll over from Summer terms to Fall semester and Fall Semester to Spring semester, providing that a new meal plan is purchased for the rollover term.
