Student Dining Appeals

All full-time undergraduate students participate in the Tiger Eat$ program. If you are an undergraduate student, enrolled in 12 or more credit hours and at least one of your classes is on campus, you will automatically have $300 in Tiger Eat$ added to your account each fall and spring semester.  Tiger Eat$ can only be appealled for dietary circumstances.

Dining appeals for any fee, charge, or refund will be prorated based on weeks in the semester. Dining appeals must be submitted during the current registered term in which the dining fee assessment was made.  The following deadlines will apply:

  • Fall semester appeals - November 1
  • Spring semester appeals - March 1

Appeal requests must be received by the filing deadline date. Exceptions to the deadline will not be granted.
