Yes! It's a great value and it is SMCC's policy that all designated Campus Residents purchase a meal plan each semester.
Flex Dollars are cash values included in all meal plan. They work like a pre-paid debit card with funds kept on your student ID card. Flex Dollars may be used at any on-campus dining location.
They are carried over from the fall to the spring when a new meal plan is purchased in the spring. They are not carried over from year to year.
Block plans may be used all year round while the dining hall is open and are active as long as you attend SMCC.
Beacon Bucks are cash values that can be transferred through the Financial Office in the Campus Center during the first 2 weeks of each semester. At any time they can be purchased at any register at all dining locations on campus also online. They are not tied into a meal plan, but can be purchased in any amount throughout the semester in $5 increments and are carried over from year to year as long as you are enrolled in school. Faculty and Staff are encouraged to purchase Beason Bucks for themselves!
