Students who choose their meal plan carefully may be able to cut college costs by selecting the plan that is best for them, according to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).
Most often, the meal plan will come out of students’ financial aid or their parents’ money if they’re footing the bill. Funds will be loaded on a card students swipe at on-campus cafeterias and restaurants.
Students can waste a lot of money eating off-campus and even rack up credit card debt by charging food. Most meals on-campus are already paid for through the meal plan, so students should eat on-campus as much as possible.
