Board Options

College policy permits students who are living on campus in the residence halls to choose from any of the three full board options. If you live in a residence hall, you must have a full board plan. Students living in an honor house, living off campus, are student teaching, or doing clinicals through the Nursing Department are allowed to select the partial board option.

Only students who live off campus in non-St. Olaf housing are allowed to select the “No Board” option. Students who have documented medical conditions that require food modification should contact the Director of Residence Life to discuss meal plan options – including the “No Board” plan option.

You are able to select your board plan online through the SIS (Student Information System). Once you are signed in click on the Financials link on the left hand side. From the financials page you will see a drop down menu on the right side, choose board plan from the drop down. This will bring you to the page where you can select or change your board plan.

Interim board plan charges are included in your fall and spring semester bill. If you will be abroad on an interim program, your account will be adjusted to reflect no interim meal plan charge. If you are abroad for a semester or an interim program you will not be charged for a meal plan for that term.
