Required Food Plan for Residential Students

Residential Student's External Policy

MCAD recognizes the importance of healthy eating and easy access to food for academic success for students. While MCAD's residential apartments provide fully equipped kitchens, MCAD also has an on-campus cafe serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks on weekdays during the academic year. To promote healthy eating habits, new incoming resident students are required to purchase a $600 per semester declining balance food plan to be used in the MCAD Cafe. The plan will be charged each semester along with tuition and MCAD apartment rent. Student's may choose to add additional funds to the minimum plan.

By the first day of the semester, residential students will receive in their MCAD email a virtual MCAD Cafe card for $300 to be kept on their personal mobile device. Following the first week of classes, the additional $300 will be added to your Cafe Card. The MCAD Cafe card operates much like an electronic gift card that can be used in person at the MCAD Cafe or on the mobile ordering takeout system. The virtual card allows for ease of payment, immediate access to card balances, and to add additional value to the card.

If a student withdraws from MCAD, they will be refunded following MCAD's refund policy found here. If a student withdraws and the balance left in their food plan is less than the prorated refund, they will be refunded the actual remaining balance in the food plan account.

The balance of the unused MCAD Cafe card will carry over from the Fall semester to the Spring semester; however, any balance of unused funds at the end of Spring semester will be forfeited.

Exemptions from participating in this food plan can be found in the Food Plan Exemption Policy.
