Dining Plans


How to Change Meal Plan

​Students in traditional Residence Halls may change your dining plan until 3:00pm the Tuesday prior to the beginning of the fall semester and the Friday prior to the beginning of the spring semester by emailing the PointCard office (pco@uwsp.edu) from your UWSP email account and requesting the change. Changes are not permitted during the first week of the semester, but changes will be accepted during the second and third weeks. During the second and third weeks changes can only be made by visiting the PointCard Office (340 DUC).  Please be aware that you may see an additional charge or refund on your tuition bill depending on how many meals and Dawg Dollars you have used prior to the change. Changes to plans can be made at the PointCard Office​ (715-346-2012) in the DUC. If you do not select a plan you will be automatically assigned to the 200 Block plan.

​​General Information

In addition to the cost of food, plan fees cover operational expenses including: debt service, rent, utilities, wages & benefits, supplies, equipment, cleaning, maintenance, insurance and UW System overhead. For the 2014-15 academic year, operating expenses are $825 of the total plan cost. Dining is entirely self-supporting and does NOT receive any funding from the State and functions similarly to a regular business enterprise.

Each day is broken into four meal periods depending on location. Meal periods are breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late night. There is NO limit on how many meal swipes you can use in a day, so manage your account accordingly.

Unused meals do not roll over to the following semester, so it is important to determine which plan fits your academic schedule, extracurricular activities, and weekend travel plans.

You can check your meal balance at any DSC register, in the PointCard Office​ (715-346-2012) or online by logging into your account on the PointCard Office website.

Dawg Dollars are attached to some plans and provide the freedom to purchase any item at DSC dining locations. Dawg Dollars are worth one dollar each and purchases are tax exempt. Dawg Dollars roll over from the fall to the spring semester as long as a new dining plan contract is signed and remains active for the entire semester. All Dawg Dollars must be used by the end of the spring semester and do not carry over.

PointCash is accepted at all dining locations, along with several other areas on campus and a number of restaurants off campus. Visit the PointCard Office​​ for a complete list.​
