SCAD offers several dining options to suit students' schedules and lifestyles. Meal plans are purchased and administered on a quarterly basis, and services are accessed through the use of the SCAD Card. Meal plans are not available at Hong Kong Gold Coast Residences or at SCAD Lacoste.
Traditional meal plans
Traditional meal plans offer a designated number of meals per week or quarter, as well as a variable amount of flexible spending credit (Dining Dollars) for students to use at any SCAD dining location or SCAD convenience store.
Students residing at The Hive, Montgomery House, Oglethorpe House, Turner House, and pods and suites in FORTY must choose one of the traditional meal plans. Students who do not select a meal plan prior to enrollment but are required to select a traditional meal plan will be assigned meal plan B.
Apartment meal plans
Apartment meal plans offer a designated number of meals at the start of the quarter for students residing off-campus and those living in apartment-style campus housing.
Students residing at Barnard Village, Boundary Village, Pulaski House, ACA Residence Hall of SCAD, Victory Village and apartments in FORTY must choose a meal plan. These residents may choose from any of the traditional or apartment meal plans. If a meal plan is not selected prior to enrollment, meal plan F will be assigned.

Meal plan changes and cancellations
Students may change meal plans by the second Thursday of each quarter. If eligible, students may cancel meal plans by the fourth Thursday of each quarter to receive a prorated refund. Remaining meal swipes do not carry over to the next quarter.
Dining Dollars do roll over to the next successive quarter and will not expire until the end of the spring term for that academic year.
Dining periods are designated times throughout the day that you can swipe for each type of meal. There are six dining periods each day:
- Early morning: midnight to 5:29 a.m.
- Breakfast: 5:30–10:29 a.m.
- Lunch: 10:30 a.m. to 2:29 p.m.
- Afternoon: 2:30–4:29 p.m.
- Dinner: 4:30–9:59 p.m.
- Late night: 10 p.m. to midnight
Students on meal plans A and B may use one meal swipe per dining period until all meals for the week have been used. A and B meal plan balances reset every Thursday at midnight. Meal plans C, D, E and F provide all meals at the start of the meal plan cycle each quarter, and the plan balance is to last the entire quarter. Students swipe for meals at their discretion, and each swipe deducts from the plan balance.
Dining facilities have varying hours of operation. Review café hours to see which dining facilities are open during each meal period.
