The food allowance for all boarding students has increased to $856.67 per semester, which is sufficient for most boarding students' food expenses in the Student Dining Room for one semester. Some students spend more than this allotment. The document below 'Fall Daily Declining Balance Schedule ' shows a list of daily balances for the entire semester if the same even amount is spent each day to utilize the entire allotment...this is ment as a guide only.
If your allotment is depleted before the end of the semester: $100.00 is added to your mealcard balance, with a corresponding $100.00 charge applied to your Principia Master Account. All remaining balances at the end of Fall semester will be added to the Spring semester's allotment. Credit balances leftover at the end of the fiscal year will be forfeited, as explained in the Principia Meal Plan document below.
If you lose your mealcard and need to get a new one: You should come to Dining Services and inform the Manager on Duty that you need to get a new mealcard. We will give you a temporary voucher that will allow you to be able to temporarily purchase meals. The voucher will need to be taken to Campus Security so they can make your new mealcard.
The document below 'Important Dates for Boarding Studnets and PrinCard Usage' explains when your Prin meal card is active with full benefits.
