 What are meal periods?

There are three meal periods per day Monday through Friday and two meal periods per day Saturday and Sunday. You may use one meal swipe of your meal plan during each meal period (does not apply to Argo Unlimited, Argo Unlimited Plus or block plans). 

 Does my Meal Plan and Dining Dollars roll over to the next semester?

No. Meal/Block Plans and Dining Dollars roll over from fall to spring to summer and expire at the end of the summer term.

 When is payment for the mandatory meal plan due?

Payment is due at the same time as payment for housing and tuition.


 Can I purchase more Dining Dollars?

No, but you may add funds to your Nautilus Card declining balance account via MyUWF (convenience fee applies), the ADM located in Pace Library or at the Commons Service Desk (no convenience fee). These funds can then be used anywhere on campus, including Dining Services and they roll over from semester to semester. 


 When will my plan begin and end?

Each semester, meal and block plans begin the first day of Housing check-in and run through the last day of finals for that semester.


 Does the Mandatory Meal Plan apply to Transfer Students?

The mandatory meal plan can apply to some Transfer Students.

A student’s status as FTIC is not the same as a classification indicating academic progress.

“First Time In College” (FTIC) students are defined as students who have earned a standard high school diploma from a regionally accredited high school or its equivalent and who have earned fewer than 12 semester hours of transferable college credit since graduating from high school, as evaluated by UWF.

To determine if you are an FTIC student, please contact the Undergraduate Admissions office at 850.474.2230 or  admissions@uwf.edu

 Can I change my meal or block plan?

Yes, you can change your meal or block plan. Contact the Nautilus Card office (idcard@uwf.edu or 850.474.3324) during the first 2 weeks after the start of classes or after the date you purchased the plan, whichever is later. 


 When can I use Guest Swipes?

Meal Plan participants with a Argo 12 or 15 Meal Plan will receive 2 free meal swipes/passes each semester that can be used to pay for guest meals. A free guest meal swipe must be used at the same time as a regular meal swipe.
