Dining Cheat Sheet

The Allotment Program

$8 a day will be issued to each ALC Resident.

“Allotted Dollars” will be provided in bulk on a monthly basis. This averages around $240 in allotted funds per resident and an average of $480 in allotted funds per couple. Just as with our past programs, these funds may be utilized to select meals and A la Carte items in a flexible and easy manner as well as used to purchase meals and beverage for residents guests and catered service. Upon use of allotted funds purchases will be billed as a debit charge to your monthly statement equal dollar for dollar utilizing standard U.S. Currency rates.

After one month (30-31 DAYS) allotted funds expire and cannot be carried over to the next period, sold, traded or transferred from one resident household to another.

Residents leaving campus for 14 consecutive days or more are asked to turn in a Resident Travel form to Jennifer in the main ALC office one week in advance so they can be credited $8 a day back to their monthly statement account.
