Meal Plans

Details/pricing for VSU meal plans and general dining operations questions should be directed to Blazer Dining  

Please contact the VSU Meal Plan Manager at if you have questions or concerns about the meal plan assigned to your account; for information about account charges and issues relating to adding/deleting/changing your meal plan; or if you experience problems when trying to access your meal plan.  Email correspondence should be sent from your email account and should include your VSU student I.D. number (870# on your 1Card) and as much detailed information as possible.  

  • Please note that if you do not select a meal plan each semester when you register for classes, the default plan will be assigned to your account.
  • Dining Dollars roll from fall-to-spring semester and expire at the end of spring semester; unused meal swipes are forfeited at the end of each semester.  
  • Students are limited to three (3) meal plan changes per semester, and said changes must be submitted in your Banner account before the meal plan change deadline.
  • The deadline to make changes is the first Thursday of the semester (during the first official week of classes) at NOON.  
  • The deadline for FALL 2017 is NOON on Thursday, August 17th (for spring 2017, the deadline was at noon on Thursday, January 12th).

All requests for information and/or changes must be submitted in writing by the student.  If said student has given VSU permission to disclose account information to his/her parents via a "Student Records Release" form, parents may request information by email as well (the release form and other important forms are located on the VSU Registrar's website).  The student should be copied on all parental correspondence.
