1. Is Mohawk College's Meal Plan Mandatory?
Mohawk College has a mandatory meal plan for all students living on residence. The mandatory meal plan is meant to supplement the funds you spend on meals. That is, your meal plan is not meant to cover all your food expenses, during the year as Mohawk College has kept your commitment low. The meal plan is currently open only to students living on residence. Students who do not make a selection, will automatically be assigned to the Commuter Meal Plan.
2. What are the benefits?
- Savings - The Meal Plans will save you money. Meals purchased using your meal plan are tax free so you can save up to 13% on applicable purchases on campus.
- Convenience - You do not have to carry cash on campus.
- Security - If your card is missing or lost, quickly deactivate your card and then contact the ONE Card office (Fennell Campus), Student Engagement (Stoney Creek Campus), or Student Engagement at the McMaster Campus (IAHS) for obtaining a replacement.
