Meal Plans
  • Valdosta State now offers an off campus meal plan through TAPINGO. View the locations that accept the FLEX account here.
    • When purchasing food at any of the dining locations on-campus, please specify from which account you would like to pay…Dining Dollars or FLEX.  These are two separate accounts that you can access with your VSU 1Card, and it will expedite the payment process if you tell the cashiers which account to charge.
  • Please contact the Meal Plans Manager at Emails should be sent by the student from his/her email account, and should include the student’s I.D. number (870 on the student’s 1Card) and as much detailed information as is possible. If you experience problems when trying to access your meal plan, or if you have general questions; need to make changes before the meal plan change cut-off date (normally scheduled for noon on the fifth day of classes); or if you would like to add another plan late in the semester.  Each student is limited to ONE meal plan change per semester, but additional plans may be added if the original plan is depleted before the end of the term. 
  •   All requests for information/changes must be made in writing by the student (unless said student has given VSU permission to disclose account information to his/her parents; information must still be requested in writing)
