Meal Plans

Meal plans include Dining Dollars, which can be used at the dining hall and Lion’s Den. Dining dollars are carried from first to second semester. Any remaining dining dollars are not refunded. We also offer Lions bucks (declining balance) for the MSSU one card. There is a 10% discount per every food service dollar deposited on the card. There is no limited balance requirement. Lions bucks carry over from semester to semester and on to the next academic year.
