2015 - 2016 Dining Policy

Mandatory Dining Exemption

Meal Plans:
Campus resident students with dietary restrictions due to a disability or medical condition or with dietary restrictions based on religious practices may apply for exemption from mandatory meal plan participation. In order to qualify for an exemption, students must submit a Meal Plan Exemption Request Form and all required documentation to the Student Services Program Director no later than the last day to drop/add. Exemption Request Forms can be picked up or requested by email from the following departments: One Stop – onestop@uab.edu, Student Services - campuscard@uab.edu, Campus Restaurants – uabdining@uab.edu, and Disability Support Services – dss@uab.edu. After that point, mandatory meal plan charges will not be removed from the student account unless the student is approved for withdrawal from the University by the UAB Office of Enrollment Management.

Campus residents who are approved for meal plan exemption will still be subject to the mandatory Campus Dining Fee unless they apply and are approved for Dining Fee exemption. Students must re-apply for exemption prior to the beginning of each subsequent academic year.

Campus Dining Fee:
Campus resident students and all undergraduate students taking twelve (12) or more credit hours who do not reside on campus with dietary restrictions due to a disability or medical condition or with dietary restrictions based on religious practices may apply for exemption from the Campus Dining Fee. In order to qualify for an exemption, students must submit a Campus Dining Fee Exemption Request Form and all required documentation to the Student Services Program Director no later than the last day to drop/add.
