  • Commuter Meal Plan Expectations
    1. Commuter Meal Plans may be used for the cardholder only. Your commuter meal plan balance cannot be shared with others.
    2. Meal plans are purchased for the semester or session – unused meals will not roll over to another semester or session.
    3. Students may purchase more than one commuter meal plan each semester. Please call WMU Dining Services at (269) 387-4844 for this request.
    4. Guests may accompany a meal plan holder to a dining location by using Dining Dollars, Guest Passes, cash or credit to purchase a meal at the door.
    5. Dining Centers provide dine-in options, please do not remove food from the dining centers to eat later. Grab'n Go locations may be used to get food to go.
    6. Meal plans may be charged to your WMU student account or purchased online with a valid credit card but may not be split between the two payment options. Please review your payment options carefully to avoid service fees.
  • How Do I Change My Commuter Meal Plan?

    Commuter Meal Plan students may change meal plans once per semester at the beginning of the semester. You can change your meal plan by contacting the Dining Office at (269) 387-4844  during the following dates:

  • Redeem your meals by swiping your Bronco Card at the entrance of a Dining Center or Grab'n Go location.
  • Bronco 14 Meal Plans and Commuter Block Meal Plans are declining balance plans; one meal will be deducted from your card each time you enter a dining location. You may inquire about the number of meals remaining on your meal plan when you enter the dining area.
  • Your meal plan balance may not be shared with others unless you use your Guest Passes or Dining Dollars.
  • Your Bronco Card should remain in your possession at all times. Misuse of your card may result in fines and/or disciplinary action.
