With the start of the 2022-2023 academic year, Tech Dining has the following refund and cancellation policy regarding meal plans:
- Students canceling or downgrading their voluntary meal plan to a lower-cost plan may do so before the first day of meal service (8/17 for UpperClass students as well as First-year students) in the Fall 2022 and receive a full refund with no penalty. Changes after these deadlines will not receive a refund (posted at dining.gatech.edu).
- Students planning to cancel their Spring meal plan after the first day of the Fall meal service and during the approved change window will receive a 75% refund (posted at dining.gatech.edu).
- Students downgrading their Spring meal plan between the first day of Fall meal service and the first day of Spring meal service will be charged a fee that equals 25% of the difference between the original and newly purchased base meal plan cost (the cost of the meal plan swipes).

Should students desire more than the originally purchased quantities, multiple Dining Dollar and Meal Pass Plan purchases are permitted throughout the semester. Sales of these plans are available through the end date posted at dining.gatech.edu. Summer and Fall Dining Dollar purchases (including those pre-packaged with meal plans) roll forward through the Spring semester. Dining Dollars purchased but not used as of the end of the Spring semester will expire and are not refunded back to the student’s Bursar account. Bonus Dining Dollars are not refunded to the student’s account as these bonus dollars have no value.
According to the table below, the Dining Office will post the appropriate refund amount to the student's account in accordance with the Bursar's office schedule for payments. Please see https://dining.gatech.edu/terms-%26-conditions for additional information.
