Board Plan (Assumes board cost plus any applicable Idaho State sales tax)

The College of Idaho expects that all full-time students participate in a meal plan. Our food service provider, Bon Appetit, supplies us with a wide variety of high-quality, fresh, and tasty offerings, as well as education about healthy food choices.

Freshman and Sophomores living on campus are required to purchase Plan A, Plan B, or Plan C each term. Freshman and Sophomores living off campus may purchase the Coyote Cash Plan.

Juniors and Seniors on campus also have the option of purchasing Plan D. Juniors and Seniors are also eligible to participate in a Coyote Cash plan should they wish not to participate in the other Board Plans offered.

A student may add Coyote Cash onto his/her meal plan and upgrade to a larger meal plan at any point in the year. Meal Plans A, B, C, or D can be downgraded only during the first week of Fall and Winter terms. If a student wishes to change his/her meal plan after the first week, or is approved by the Non-Academic Petition Committee to change his/her meal plan after the first week, that change will not take effect until the following term.
