Returning students (sophomores, juniors, and seniors) residing in college housing are assigned to a campus dining plan based on their residence location.

Residents of Mid-Rise and Marian Halls are required to participate in the Carte Blanche Plan.

All sophomores are required to remain on a dining plan.  Sophomore residents of Gartland who do not select an option will be pre-enrolled in the Apartment 15 Meals Plus $150 Thrifty Cash for the semester and must remain at a minimum in this plan.

Commuters, off-campus students, and residents of Gartland Commons, Upper and Lower West Cedar, Foy Townhouses, Fulton, Talmadge, and Residence Inn may select any Dining Plan.

Many upper-class students have made the decision to remain on a dining plan while living on campus because of the value, flexibility, and convenience.

Dining Plan Information

Thrifty Cash

Thrifty Cash is the debit portion of the college dining plan that can be used in any campus dining facility (retail or residential). Funds remaining in a Thrifty Cash account transfer from the fall semester to the spring semester only, provided that the student remains enrolled in a dining plan. At the end of the fall semester, any funds remaining in the account may be used at campus retail locations provided the student is registered for a Marist College winter intercession class. Marist senior students cleared for graduation may use their Thrifty Cash funds during senior week. At the end of the spring semester, any funds remaining in the account do not carry forward to the next semester and will be forfeited. Students may add funds to their Thrifty Cash account at the Student Financial Services Office located in Donnelly Hall.

Our Dining Hall and Retail Shops accept Cash, Credit, Marist Money and Thrifty Cash.
Should you need further information or assistance in selecting a plan or changing a plan, please feel free to contact us at 845.575.5100. We look forward to providing you with excellent service throughout your academic career at Marist!

Any student enrolled in a dining plan requiring accommodations for a medical or dietary concern should contact the Director of Housing and Residential Life at (845) 575-3307 or by e-mail at Housing@Marist.edu.
