However, freshmen living in campus residence halls are automatically charged for a 7 Day Basic Meal Plan but can choose to upgrade to the 7 Day Plus or 5 Day Plus by August 10, 2018 or switch to the 5 Day Basic Meal Plan by September 7, 2018 by request through Housing. Freshmen living in Scarlett Commons or Womack Lane Apartments are automatically assigned the 100 Meal Plan but can choose to upgrade to the 7 Day Plus, 5 Day Plus, 7 Day Basic, 5 Day Basic or 150 Meal Plan by August 10, 2018 by request through the Housing office.
