Below are some answers to frequently asked questions about Herkimer College dining and meal plans. For more information, don’t hesitate to call the Dining Center at 315-574-4014.
Do unused meals carry over to the following week?
Meals from the 12 meals and 10 meal plans and the Commuter Plan do not carry over from one week to the next. The meals on both meal plans reset on Monday, thus making the week run from Monday - Sunday. Flex Dollars from the plan do carry over into the following semester but expire at the end of the school year. We can help you decide on the right plan to fit your schedule and eating habits, ensuring that you get the full value for your dollars.
How much do meal plans cost?

Can I change my dining plan?
You have the opportunity to change your dining plan until the census date (date full tuition is incurred) each semester. Simply go to the Bursar’s office or the Food Services office in RMCC and fill out a dining plan change form.
Are you open for early arrival students, athletes and extended stay students?
Food services may be open on a limited basis for early arrival and extended stay students. If you intend to use a meal plan during these periods, additional funding will be required for your meal plan.
Can I treat a friend by using my Dining Membership?
You are the only person allowed to use your "meals." If you would like to treat a friend, you may pay for their meal by using your Flex Dollars (declining balance account).
What do I do when my Flex Dollars runs low?
Reload. You may add Flex Dollars to your account using cash, check, money order or VISA or MasterCard. Simply go to the Campus Dining Office (located in the Catering Center) to make your payment.
Do I need a new ID card each year?
