Meal Plans FAQ

What's 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 MealCredits in the Rathskeller & Center Court?

No, MealCredits can only be used in Panther Dining Hall. The FlexCredit portion of your meal plan may be used in the Rathskeller Eatery, 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 MealCredits and FlexCredit?

There is no rollover or refund for unused MealCredits. FlexCredit, however, 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. All FlexCredit is zeroed out at the end of the Spring semester.  FlexCredit is part of your meal plan and has NO RESIDUAL CASH VALUE.  It can not be "cashed in" or "rolled over" after the end of the academic year.  

Can I buy more FlexCredit?

Yes, a minimum $10 extra FlexCredit can be purchased at the Campus Services office. 

Can I use my plan during Spring Break or Thanksgiving?

Florida Tech's Dining Services will honor meal plans during Thanksgiving and spring break. However, meal plans terminate at the end of each semester (Sunday, commencement weekend) and most dining operations are closed. 

What if I can't make it to meals because I am in class or at work?

We'll be happy to supply you with a bag lunch at Panther Dining. Just let us know when and we'll have your lunch ready 'to go.' A MealCredit will be deducted just as if you had eaten in.
