With all the worries of going to college, the last thing you need to do is plan your next meal. Marist Dining Services provides a variety of dining plans offering flexibility and value to meet your needs. These plans are also available for graduate students.

The combination of value, choice, and variety make any one of these plans a great option for dining on campus. A dining plan can be modified by visiting the MyHousing page on and clicking My Meal Plan. Dining plan changes are made online and can take up to two business days to process. Any meal swipes remaining in an account on any Dining Plan do not transfer from the fall to spring semester.

Thrifty Cash is a dollar amount associated with each dining plan that can be used in any campus dining facility (retail or residential). Purchases made using Thrifty Cash are tax exempt. Funds remaining in a Thrifty Cash account transfer from the fall semester to the spring semester only, provided that the student remains enrolled in a dining plan for the spring semester. 

To add money to your Thrifty Cash account online: 
Visit the MyHousing page on account to add funds in $25 increments, with a maximum addition of $100 per transaction. In order to request Thrifty Cash, please ensure that you have a credit on your student account, resulting from excess financial aid or recent payment. Without a credit on your student account, Student Financial Services will be unable to process your request. Funds can be added to a student account through the electronic billing portal by making a one-time payment to the student's tuition account. Please allow one business day for the transaction to be processed.
