Carry Over Points and how to use them:

Carry over points are unused points from fall semester that automatically carry over to spring semester.  If you have leftover points you will see that amount in your "Carry Over Plan". If you have a meal plan for spring semester, the points from your current plan will be depleted first, THEN your "Carry Over Points" will automatically be available.  You do not need to do anything.  Please remember that there is no refund for unused points. In order to use your fall semester points, you must use all of your points from your spring meal plan. Please note that meal plans are valid until noon the day after the last day of finals.  At that time, all unused meals and points will be forfeited.  The ONLY exception to this rule being, if you are a graduating senior, your meal plan will stay valid through senior week.
