Any student who wishes to change or add a meal plan should email housing@theacademy-ibt.com.

Meal Plans can be added to or increased at any time throughout the semester. Requests for cancellations or reductions in meal plans must be made prior to the end of the first two weeks of the respective semester.

PLEASE NOTE: Meal plans and points do not rollover from the previous semester. Any points remaining at the end of any semester will be lost if they are not used.

Points

Our experience shows that students tend to spend $225 each semester on coffee and snacks during non-meal times. Upgrade any meal plan by adding Points and avoid worrying about having extra cash on hand. These optional funds add greater flexibility and choices and are ideal for coffee on-the-go, late night snacks, and off-hours meals. Points work just like cash at all of our on-campus locations, helping to increase convenience and satisfaction.

Points can be purchased throughout the semester in any dollar increment. To purchase Points, stop by the Dining Services office, call us at 215.572.2096, or email Dan, General Manager for Metz Dining Services, at calland@theacademy-ibt.com.

PLEASE NOTE: Points do not rollover from the previous semester. Any points remaining at the end of any semester will be lost if they are not used.
