Meal Plans and Flex


Meal plans are divided into two components at UNCG:

  • Meals: Meal swipes can be used to enter Fountain View or for a “Spartan2Go meal.”
  • Flex: Flex is a declining balance meal plan account on your SpartanCard that allows you to eat at UNCG.

Please note: “Add a Plan” refers to adding Flex / Meals to your card without an existing plan, while “Change a Plan” refers to replacing your current plan (less any Flex/Meals you have used).


Residential Students:

  • Registration until the end of the first week of classes (Friday): Students are granted a single change to any eligible plan except “Flex Recharges.” Please note that residential changes are opened based on when housing application data is uploaded to UNCG’s main student information system. Residential students will be notified via email when the change period is open.
  • Second week of classes through signup end*: No changes are allowed. “Flex Recharges” may be added to your student bill via Genie, or Flex may be added directly using SpartanCard Online.

Commuter Students:

  • Registration until the end of the first week of classes (Friday): Students are granted a single change to any eligible plan except “Flex Recharge.”
  • Second week of classes through signup end*: No changes are allowed. You may sign up for a new plan until the thesis filing deadline. “Flex Recharges” may be added to your student bill if you have an existing meal plan via UNCGenie, or Flex may be added directly using SpartanCard Online.
* While the ability to add Flex typically ends two weeks before classes do, the official date changes slightly each semester. Contact the SpartanCard Center for further details.
