Students may use as many meals per meal period (Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner) as they want to and may provide meals for guests. The Black & Gold Plan may be customized at the Union Information/Service Desk any time after the first day of classes by: using Jacket Cash or U.S. dollars to buy additional blocks of 10 meals for $70, converting meals to Jacket Cash in blocks of 10 meals for $67.50, or adding Jacket Cash with deposits of $25.00 or more.
