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.  

$1450 = $1570 Dining Dollars
$725 = $785 Dining Dollars

Your CCS SmART CARD identifies you as a holder of a meal plan, which is valuable and should betreated 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. All students are locked into a meal plan for the academic year starting on move-in day. After move-in day, the size of the meal plan can be switched until September 10 in the fall semester and January 21 in the winter semester.

If you were to run out of dining dollars, you may also 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.

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

We are happy to assist in any dietary needs you have. If you have specific dietary needs that might require special attention, we will make every attempt to meet your needs.  For more information, please contact Brian Sanders at b.sanders@continentalserves.com.
