Selecting the right dining plan for me
When a student is awarded financial aid, their award is budgeted for the Basic Dining Plan.  If you have any doubt about what size plan to select, you may want to select a smaller plan.  Additional money can always be added to your chosen dining plan.  Unused points are not refundable.

Deadlines for Changing the Dining Plan Choice for the Coming Term
A dining plan can be changed only during specific periods and only for the coming term. 
Fall Plan: July 29, 2017

To change a dining plan, log into MyElmhurst, then MyHousing and MyDining and follow the directions.

Dining Plan for resident students in College Houses and Apartments
Apartment residents may purchase an optional Apartment Dining Plan. Apartment Dining Plans are for the full academic year and must be used up by the end of the academic year. All residents may add points to the dining plan by going online to TouchNet, or by going to the Office of Student Financial Services to pay with cash or with their student account credit balance.
