To add a meal plan, students may make a selection through the official university registration site under Fee Options during the time scheduled or visit the website diningservices.tamu.edu. Once the university registration is closed and/or meals have started for the semester, students will need to use the Dining Services' website. All Meal Plans will be added to your university student account and are payable according to Student Business Services information under Tuition and Fees as published by Texas A&M University. Any purchases added following the published financial deadlines, including additional Dining Dollars, are payable immediately. Changes or drops/cancels to a meal plan require an email request and are permitted only through the fourth week of classes according to the University's schedule for tuition and fee adjustments.
