Your arrival at Cedarville is not far away, and you will soon be enjoying our beautiful dining hall. As you prepare to join the University family, it’s time to think about your meal plan options. Cedarville University and Pioneer College Caterers offer a selection of six meal plan options. The flexibility of these plans is designed to serve the varied needs of the Cedarville student body. Below are the plans that will be available to you.
Group A – $1,549 Per Semester ($3,098 for the year)
- The 21-Meal Option provides the opportunity to enjoy up to 21 meals each week in the dining hall.
- The Block 220 Meal Option entitles students to 220 meals per semester. Meals are counted by the semester, offering greater flexibility and fewer "missed meals"; in addition, you can invite up to four friends/family members to eat with you using this plan. A total of four guests may be invited each breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner period.
- The Block 210 Meal Option entitles students to 210 meals per semester and $40 in Chuck's Bucks, which can be used at The Hive (Cedarville's snack shop) or Rinnova (a coffee bar) with the same flexibility features of the Block 220 option.

Commuter – $1,023 Per Semester ($2,046 for the year)
- The Block 120 Meal Option is a special meal plan only for commuters, off-campus interns, student teachers, and nursing students involved in clinicals. Commuter students please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Student teachers, off-campus interns, and nursing students involved in clinicals must email their advisor for approval. The advisor should forward approval to email@example.com. All requests must be received one week prior to start of term.
All block meal plans entitle students to unlimited exchange meals in the Hive. Exchange meals are available 11 am - 8 pm, Monday through Friday and 12:30 pm to 8 pm on Saturdays, and are counted in place of a dining hall meal. These are not additional meals but part of each block meal plan.
The 21 and 14 meal plans entitle students to 25 exchange meals per semester in The Hive. Exchange meals are available 11 a.m.—8 p.m., Monday through Friday and 12:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays, and are counted in place of a dining hall meal. These are not additional meals but part of each meal plan.
The block plans allow for more flexibility, but do not provide three meals per day to cover the entire semester's 330 available meals. IE: The block 170 meal plan only provides 170 meals and it is possible to run out of meals by the end of the semester.
Meal plans cannot be changed after 5 p.m. the first Friday of classes.
Unused meals are not transferable from one semester to the next.
Under the block plans, you will be charged for a meal every time you enter the dining hall even if it is just to have a soft drink and talk or study.
Under the 21/14 meal options, "unlimited entries" are allowed (entering the dining hall for a second time during a single meal period has no impact on your total available meals).
Purchase Chuck's Bucks and enjoy the convenience of using your declining balance account for purchases at The Hive, Rinnova, and the dining hall.. These accounts are available to all members of the Cedarville University community as follows:
Resident and commuter students can purchase Chuck's Bucks with cash or check during the first week of class in the Cashiers Office and record the transaction on their student account. Chuck's Bucks can also be purchased with cash or check at The Hive or at the food services office. Unused Chuck's Bucks expire at the end of each semester.
