Meal Plan Policy Re: Withdrawal and Refund

Dining Plan Fees:

The Dining Plan fees must be paid by the due dates in order to guarantee that the Resident’s Dining Plan Card will be ready upon arrival. The full amount of the Dining Plan chosen is applied to the Resident’s card; it is not split by semester. The Dining Plan consists of two accounts: the Main Meal Account, which is tax exempt; and the Confectionary Account for taxable purchases. Confectionary purchases would include such items as individual purchases of soft drinks, candy, and chips. The Dining Plans will reflect the different accounts as follows:

Dining Plan Fees
Total Value of Meal Plan Main Meal Account Allocated Confectionery Account
$2,350 $2,150 $200
$2,850 $2,500 $350
$3,400 $2,900 $500

Dinning Plan Balance Duration:

Residents should note that Dining Plan options are not guaranteed to last the entire Academic year or semester (if one semester option is selected). Dining Plans have been designed to accommodate students with varied appetites, who may not eat regular meals or leave the Residence frequently, while meeting the requirements of Canada Revenue Agency regulations in order to be tax exempt. Residents are responsible for budgeting and managing their accounts. Residents can go onto the website: http://mymealplan.humber.ca to find out their balance any time, or they can ask for their balance at the cash register. If a Resident runs short of funds on the Dining Plan card, additional values in $100.00 increments may be purchased. Residents can make the payment at the Campus Dining Office (located at the North Campus Room KB101) or to the Food Services Manager, at the Lake Café. Payments can be made by MasterCard, Visa, Interact or Certified Cheque.

Cancellations And Refunds:

Requests for cancellations and refunds are initiated when Residents complete an online Residence Withdrawal Form on the Residence website (www.residence.humber.ca, under Documents and Forms) Should a Resident withdraw prior to the end of this Agreement; only amounts above the prorated basic minimum Dining Plan commitment of $69.35 per week are refundable, less a $50 administration fee.

At the end of the Academic year, the first $2150 on all Dining Plans is non-refundable. Residents who purchased a $2850 or $3400 Dining Plan may be eligible for a refund on balances in their main Meal Account above $2150, providing the Resident’s main Meal Account has a minimum balance of $25 left on their card. Residents who qualify for a Dining Plan refund will receive a cheque which will be mailed from “Chartwells/Compass Group” to the address indicated on the Official Residence Withdrawal Form. Refunds take 3-6 weeks after receiving the withdrawal request form. Note: The Retail Sales Tax Act states that all Dining Plans must be prepaid and that they are non-refundable and non transferable in order to qualify for the tax-exempt status.
