Are Meal Plans required?

All undergraduate students living on campus are required to purchase a meal plan. Graduate students and commuters have the option to purchase anyone of our available plans.

What is Declining Balance?

Declining Balance dollars are accepted as payment at all on campus restaurants. They are loaded right on your Student ID card, so there is no need to carry around cash or another card! There is no minimum balance, over draft fees, or hassles!

How do I get Declining Balance?

If you want to add points to your account you can do so in two ways:
  1. Visit www.afford.com/drew then click “make payment” and then choose the campus card option.
  2. Bring cash or check to the Business Office.

What if I want to change my Meal Plan?

Students can select or change their meal plan by logging into TreeHouse and submitting the meal plan form. Changes can be made during the first two weeks of the semester.

How do I get into the dining locations once I have purchased my Meal Plan?

Within 24 hours, your Student ID card will be activated with your meal plan. Present your card to the cashier in the dining hall, and you are all set!

Can I carry meals over to the next semester?

No, all meals expire at the end of the semester.

Can I treat a friend to a meal?

To keep discounts as high as possible, meals are reserved for the meal plan holder only. However, you can always treat a friend using Declining Balance dollars.

What do I do when my Declining Balance gets low?

Reload. Each time you purchase a snack or a full meal, you may ask the cashier to tell you how many meals and how much Declining Balance you have remaining. You can also click here to check card balances. If your dollars run low, you can add more to your account using cash, check, money order or Visa/ MasterCard. Visit the Business Office in Tilghman House or call 973-408-3114.
