Meal plans for 2017-18

Meal plans are pre-paid accounts for your dining purchases. Plans are set up at the beginning of each academic term and are charged to your tuition bill.

Plans include a set number of meals and Viking Bucks, which are electronically loaded onto your student ID. Whenever the card is used (swiped), your meal plan account balance is automatically debited.

All first-year and sophomore students are automatically assigned the Any 15 Plan at the beginning of each trimester. If a student would prefer one of the other on-campus meal plans, that change can be made by stopping by Dining Services office in The Gerber Center, or by contacting Amy Roehrs at 309-794-7543 or Beth Melton at 309-794-7250. Any changes must be made during the first two weeks of the trimester.

Junior and seniors are not assigned meal plans. They can purchase any of the on-campus or off-campus meal plans at any time.

Meal plans can be used in Gerber Center Dining Room, Brew by the Slough, the Snack Bar and Westerlin C-store.

Meal plans are non-transferable and cannot be used by others. Meal plan holders are required to show photo ID upon entry or for purchase with their plans. Violations are subject to charges under the Student Code.

Viking Bucks

Viking Bucks can be used in any Augustana dining location and also at the football stadium for concessions. You can load more Viking Bucks to your ID card at any time during the school year.

Viking Bucks roll over term to term during the academic year. Any Viking Bucks left at the end of the academic year (the Monday after commencement) will be forfeited.

Gold Unlimited on-campus plan

The Gold Unlimited plan provides unlimited access to the Gerber Center Dining Room, which offers all-you-can-eat buffets daily during operating hours. Meal bundles and to-go meals are not available with this plan. To use this meal plan at our other dining locations, you must use Viking Bucks.

Full, Any 15, Any 12 and Any 10 on-campus plans

These plans offer a certain amount of meal swipes each week which can be used to purchase all-you-can-eat meals in the Gerber Center Dining Room, and also to-go meals and meal bundles from the Brew, Westerlin C-Store and Snack Bar. Up to three swipes can be used a day.  

The meal week begins with breakfast on Sunday and ends with dinner on Saturday. Meals not used during the week are forfeited.

Any 75 and Any 90 meal off-campus plans

These plans offer a certain amount of meal swipes for the term/academic year and can be used at any time to purchase meals in the Gerber Center Dining Room, and also to-go meals and meal bundles from the Brew, Westerlin C-Store and Snack Bar. With each of these meal plans, up to three meal swipes can be used a day.  

Meal swipes and Viking Bucks roll over term-to-term during the academic year. An additional block of 25 meal swipes can be purchased at any time for $250. Any meal swipes or Viking Bucks left at the end of the academic year (the Monday after commencement) will be forfeited.
