*Who is a freshman?

For meal plan purposes, "Freshmen" are high school graduates who have not attended higher education for either a fall or spring semester after their high school graduation. This classification covers the first academic year the student is enrolled at Baylor.

Students who complete college hours during high school, and/or attend another university during the summer, and matriculate at Baylor in the fall are deemed "Freshmen" for the fall and spring semesters. Students graduating from high school in December and matriculating at Baylor in the spring are considered "Freshmen" for only the spring semester.

Brooks and Teal residents selecting the Weekday meal plans will have access Sunday dinner through Friday lunch.

Pricing and Processing

The prices for the meal plans are valid through the first day of class. Prorated charges and credits are applied beginning the second day of class based on the number of days the meal plan was available. The only exception are the Block 60 and Block 90 meal plans which are not prorated because you receive all 60 or 90 meals, depending on your meal plan selection, regardless of when they are added.

During the first two weeks of classes, any refunds or changes are calculated on a prorated basis, this includes the Block 60 and Block 90 meal plans, and will be applied to any outstanding balance on your student account.

Beginning with early registration for each term you can select your Meal Plan in BearWeb. Login to BearWeb, select Student Financial Services, select Student Account, then select Meal Plans - Add/Change. You will have the option to choose the semester(s) for your meal plan (e.g. to designate your meal plan as fall only or fall-spring). Be sure to review your eStatement when it becomes available to see that the correct meal plan is charged on your student account.

You can request a meal plan change in BearWeb. Reductions or Meal Plan drops may only be made through the second week of classes.  After the deadline, you may only request a Meal Plan to be added or increased.
