Included in the housing application is an option to select a dining plan. All new students living on campus at Shawnee State are enrolled in our Unlimited Residential Dining Plan. Dining plans include meal swipes as well as Flex Dollars that can be utilized at retail locations on campus.

All freshman and transfer students (those with 15 or fewer hours) living on campus are required to have the Unlimited meal plan, sophomore may select the 12 or 15 meal plan,  juniors or seniors may opt not to participate in a meal plan. 5 meals per week only available to juniors, seniors, and commuters. All meal plans except 5 meals per week include $35 flex dollars per semester. Meal swipes do not carry over from semester to semester. At the end of each semester, all leftover meals are removed from the students account. Upperclassmen and transfers living on campus (those with 16 or more hours), can submit meal plan changes for fall on or before the second Friday of classes. All students may request a meal plan change for the spring semester on or before the second Friday of Spring classes.
