Dining FAQs

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 and Eagle Flex) 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.

Any A la Carte balance remaining at the end of a quarter will be automatically converted to Eagle Flex at a 75% value. As Eagle Flex, these dollars remain in a student’s account for as long as that student is enrolled at EWU.

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.

Fill out a meal plan change form at the Tawanka Business Office in Tawanka Hall, room 120, or online here. Our office is open Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
