Meal Plan Frequently Asked Questions
Who is required to purchase a Meal Plan?
When does my meal plan begin?
How does my meal plan work?
What if I live in a dorm off campus and only have a reduced meal plan?

What kind of food is served in the Cafeteria?
Can my friend eat using my meal plan?
No. Your meal plan is only for your own personal use. Extra meals may be purchased by cash or check.
What if a student has a special dietary need?
The Food Service staff at NTCC will work with students to identify food that is available to meet specific dietary needs. Please contact us at (903) 563-8632 as soon as possible to discuss your specific situation. Great Western Dining will provide a meal consistent with your doctor’s instructions if you are on a special diet.
What if I lose my Student ID?
If I'm sick and cannot go out to use my meal plan, what can I do?
You will need to ask a roommate or a friend to take your ID card to the front desk of your hall and ask for a Sick Meal Pass. The desk assistant will fill out a request for a meal. Your friend will then take your ID card and the request to the Cafeteria. Your friend will pick out your food and beverage, the cashier will ring up the purchase using your ID card and collect the request.
How do I get involved with the Meal Plan program?
Can I take food out of the Cafeteria?
No food may be removed from the Cafeteria without prior authorization from a program advisor or coach.
