Campus Dining Meal Plans

In order to meet your campus dining needs, we have designed the following meal plans for the academic year.  If you need to purchase a meal plan, or if you would like to make a change to the plan you have already selected, simply email housing@collegeforcreativestudies.edu.  

785 Dining Dollars = $725 per semester
1580 Dining Dollars = $1,450 per semester

Your CCS SmART CARD identifies you as a holder of a meal plan, which is valuable and should be treated as cash. Your CCS SmART CARD must be presented for every purchase using your dining dollars to prevent unauthorized persons from using dining services for which you paid. The meal plan is a contract for the academic year starting on move-in day and ending on the last day of class in the Winter semester (May.) Students have the opportunity to change (increase or decrease) their meal plan at the beginning of each semester (September and January.) Please check the ACADEMIC CALENDAR for CCS for deadline dates. Dining Dollars are not refunded at the end of the academic year.

If you were to run out of dining dollars, you may put money on your CCS SmART card. These dollars are referred to as FLEX dollars. FLEX dollars are refunded at the end of the year. To add Flex Dollars to your SmART card, follow these directions:

  1. Go to: https://campus.ccsdetroit.edu/
  2. Click on “My SmART Card” located  in the Quick Links (upper right corner of screen)
  3. Click on “Guest Deposit”
  4. Type in Name, ID, etc > Click “Contribute”
  5. Choose amount to contribute > Click “Next” and enter credit card

Lost or Stolen Meal Cards

Lost or stolen CCS SmART CARD can be replaced.  Should this happen to you, you must purchase a new card.  Please contact Campus Safety at (Ford Campus) 313-664-7851 or (TC Campus) 313-664-1441
