Meal Plan Selection

All residents with less than 90 cumulative credit hours by August 1 are required to have a meal plan other than the commuter plan. Students may switch meal plans at any time as long as the terms of the desired meal plan have not been exceeded. Students who inaccurately project completion of 90 or more credit hours by August 1 and opt for the commuter or no meal plan will be assigned the least expensive meal plan. It is the student's responsibility to then confirm with the Student Life Office which meal plan they prefer.

A Plan unlimited meals in Dining Hall with $100 Cardinal Dollars ($1,850)
B Plan 15 meals/week in Dining Hall with $200 Cardinal Dollars ($1,810)
C Plan 200 meals/semester (approximately 12.5/week) with $350 Cardinal Dollars ($1,865)
D Plan 10 meals/week in Dining Hall with $425 Cardinal Dollars ($1,865)

Campus Residency Policy

All students are required to live on campus and must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours, unless authorized by the Office of Student Life, except when meeting one or more of the following conditions:

Jewell's student development philosophy, and College policy, requires all first-year students to have a roommate. The College makes every effort to accommodate roommate and residence hall placement requests. Applications with reciprocating roommate requests seeking placement in the same residence hall are more likely to be accommodated. Roommate assignments and building placement are the College's discretion.

Failure to comply with this policy may result in possible administrative withdrawal from the college, requirement to pay full room and board, and/or loss of institutional aid. Because student's financial award is based on information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the student (and student's parent(s) if applicable), which may include living arrangements while attending William Jewell College, the College must have an adequate system to identify conflicting information and must resolve any conflicting information concerning student's financial aid eligibility. If a student is suspected of misreporting information to increase student aid eligibility or to fraudulently obtain federal funds, the student will be reported to the U.S. Office of Inspector General."

Please ensure that all campus housing applications (first-year, transfer and current returning student applications) have the following Campus Residency Policy noted.

Please check to confirm that you have read and understand Jewell’s residency policy.


In submitting my campus housing registration, I acknowledge that I have read and agree to all terms outlined within the housing application.
