Meal plans for 2023-24
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 automatically are assigned the Any 15 Plan at the beginning of each semester. To change plans, log into the housing/dining portal. Stop by Dining Services office in the Gerber Center or contact Amy Roehrs at 309-794-7543 for help. Any changes must be made during the first two weeks of the semester.
Junior and seniors are not assigned meal plans. They can buy of the on-campus or off-campus meal plans at any time by logging into the housing and dining portal.
Meal plans can be used in Gerber Center Dining Room, Brew by the Slough, Gus' Snack Bar and the Westerlin Market. (One exception: Gerber Unlimited plans may only use meal swipes in the Gerber Center Dining Room.)
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.
Viking Bucks can be used in any Augustana dining location and also at all 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. Viking Bucks left at the end of the academic year (the Monday after commencement) will be forfeited.
