Meal Plans

2015-16 Academic Year Meal Plan Options

Charges for spring semester meal plans are applied to your account for the spring semester during the 3rd week of November.  This charge will be reflected on the December biling cycle.

Students will be charged for the meal plan they currentlly have with the exception of the 50 Block Plan and the All Flex Plan.  (See information below about the roll over policies for these two meal plans.)

If you are eligible to change your meal plan, you will be able to do so starting December 28, 2015.  Please watch for emails and Daily Bruin announcements.

ALL MEAL PLAN CHANGES MUST BE MADE BY MIDNIGHT, FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 2016.

Students will be notified through The Daily Bruin and email when the Meal Plan Selection Form has been activated in MyGFU for the upcoming semester.

Students who are eligible to do so may change their own meal plan in their MYGFU account through Friday, January 15, 2016.

After this date, students who wish to change their meal plan and are eligible to do so must email studentlife@georgefox.edu by Friday, January 22, 2016. 

In the email you must include your NAME and STUDENT ID NUMBER, along with your request.  

Your eligibility will be confirmed prior to any changes being made.

Once a change is made in MYGFU it takes at least 24 hours to be uploaded and activated on your ID card.  Changes made over the weekend are processed on Monday, with the change taking affect on Tuesday.

Please contact the Student Life Office if you have any questions at studentlife@georgefox.edu.

Students are responsible to confirm their meal plans each semester and make any changes prior to the second Friday of each semester.

Students who fail to confirm their meal plans, and if eligible, make any changes, will be charged for the meal plan applied to their account even if they did not use the meal plan.

Students select their meal plans on MyGFU. Log in to your account. Click on SELF SERVICE. Under "GFU Resources," click on UNIVERSITY FORMS.  After the Meal Plan Form is turned off, changes may be made through the end of the add/drop period, which is the first two weeks of school.

Bon Appetit makes every effort to meet the dietary and scheduling needs of our students. Boxed meals may be requested when educational scheduling conflicts arise. Exemptions from the meal plan are granted for medical reasons only and when Bon Appetit cannot accommodate a student's specific dietary needs as determined by a doctor.

A licensed physician must supply documentation of the petitioning student's medical condition. Anyone seeking an exemption from the meal plan must complete all necessary paperwork before the request for exemption is considered.

The Accommodation Form can be found on the student life website.

The deadline for all exemption paperwork is the first Friday of fall semester and the first Friday of spring semester. Paperwork completed after these dates may not be considered.
