Frequently Asked Questions About Meal Plans

If I do not use all my meals in one semester, do they carry over to the next semester?

Meals do not carry over from one semester to the next. It is important that students select a plan based on their desired eating patterns in order to get the greatest value.

What is the difference between Landmark Points and Shark Bite Points?

  • Landmark Points are funds put on your Landmark student ID card that can be used on and off campus at venues that accept the card. (See complete list below.) Unused points carry forward to the next semester or can be refunded if the student leaves the College.
  • Shark Bite Points are funds put on the Landmark student ID card that are part of an on-campus meal plan. They can only be used on campus and expire at the end of each semester.

How are points valued?

One point equals $1.00.
Likewise, 1.99 points equals $1.99.

Payment can be made using VISA, Mastercard, Amex, Discover, or bank to bank via e-check. There are no fees charged to make a payment (Also see Campus Debit Card.)
