Our meal plan options are designed to provide students (and faculty and staff!) the appropriate amount of meals to fit their busy college schedules. The options offer value and convenience, making it easy for everyone to stay fueled for success every day.


Students living on campus

No kitchen? No problem! Choose from the following meal plans if you're living on campus:

  • 7-day 12
  • 7-day 14
  • 7-day 14 Premium
  • All Access
  • All Access Premium

All students living in a residence hall (excluding Lumberjack Village Building 3) are required to have an on-campus meal plan. If an on-campus plan is not selected, the student will receive a 7-day 14 Premium plan by default.

Off-campus meal plans

Both on-campus and off-campus meal plans are available for residents of Lumberjack Village Building 3, off-campus students, faculty and staff to purchase. Signing up is voluntary, but the savings and convenience are real!


A meal plan is a way to dine on campus while saving time and money. The meal plans at SFA have two features:

Meal Swipes

A specific number of meals can be used at the Eatery on East or Food Hall 1923. One meal swipe equals one entry into either dining hall for an all-you-care-to-enjoy meal!

Dining Dollars

Dining Dollars provide the flexibility to eat at campus retail dining and market locations, including Chick-fil-A, Einstein Bros. Bagels and Starbucks.

With the swipe of your SFA Card, you can conveniently enjoy food across campus. Dining Dollars on your SFA Card work just like a debit card, deducting charges from the balance. For example, if you have $125 in Dining Dollars and spend $7 at Chick-fil-A, your remaining balance is $118 for the rest of the term.

Note: Unused dining dollars will roll over from the fall to the spring term and expire at the end of the spring term.
