Your meal plan is selected when you complete and submit your EWU Housing & Residential Life contract.
For Fall Quarter, meal plans are loaded by the first day of move-in weekend. Winter and Spring meal plans will be ready to use on the first day of those quarters.
Meal plan funds (A la Carte, Eagle Flex, and Event Counts) can be accessed using your EWU EagleCard.
You can add more funds to your A la Carte account at the Tawanka Business Office (Tawanka 120) with cash, check, or credit/debit card.
You can also call the office at (509) 359-6184 to add funds to your account with a credit/debit card.
A la Carte cannot be added online.
A la Carte points will roll over from quarter to quarter, and only expire at the end of the academic year (Spring Quarter).
Dining Services does not refund the cost of the meal plan if a student leaves University housing during the quarter. However, the student is allowed to use the remaining balances on the meal plan until the end of the academic year.
Upon cancellation of the Housing & Dining contract, students will be responsible for all housing and dining usage as defined by the EWU Housing & Residential Life refund policy.
Sell A la Carte points to a friend! Visit the Tawanka Business Office in Tawanka 120; your friend will pay a $5 transaction fee, and we will transfer the A la Carte points from your account to your friend’s. Please note: A la Carte cannot be transferred to a Flex account, only to another A la Carte account.
Use leftover A la Carte points to purchase items, like non-perishables and those with extended shelf lives, at the Union Market.
