Flex Meal Plans
Flex plans are available to students, faculty and staff.
This easy and convenient system allows you to deposit dollar amounts onto your Cougar ID card. The minimum purchase amount is $50.00. Flex dollars may be added via your KeanWISE login if you have a credit balance on your student account. Students without a credit balance and employees may come to Student Accounting to make a payment toward a flex plan. Flex dollars can also be purchased to supplement the mandatory meal plans required for all students living on campus.
The flex dollars can be spent at any food services location, the convenience store and the campus bookstore. KeanWISE transfers or in-person payments toward a flex plan that are received by end of business day will download to your Cougar ID card for use the next day.
For your convenience, Flex dollars are rolled over from semester to semester until all funds are used or a cancellation request is received by the Office of Student Accounting. The cancellation forms can be found under the student menu via your KeanWISE log in. Upon your request, unused Flex dollars will be credited back to your student account. Refunds will be issued only after any balance due on the student account has been satisfied.
Please note: flex plans can only be used during a term in which you are an enrolled student and/or a current Kean University employee. Refunds are only processed upon request.
