Meals and Points

Meal Plan Points are included with both Standard and Kosher meal plans. These points are "dollars" that are part of your meal plan and can be used like cash at any dining location at Barnard. You may use these points to purchase à la carte meals and snacks for guests and friends. Barnard's Meal Plan Points carry over from the Fall semester to the Spring semester if you remain enrolled in a Barnard meal plan in the Spring. However, Meal Plan Points remaining in your account at the end of the academic year are forfeited.

Any unused meals are forfeited at the end of each semester.

A drop or change of a meal plan will not be accepted after the fourth day of each semester. Charges will be prorated during this period, and a Meal Plan Change must be completed in eBear (under the Account Info tab).

Meal Plan Selection

*     First-year students on floors 2-8 in the Barnard Quad (Brooks, Hewitt, Reid, and Sulzberger Halls) are required to enroll in a Standard or Kosher Platinum Plan.

**   Upper Class and Transfer/Visiting students residing on floors 2-8 in the Barnard Quad (Brooks, Hewitt, Reid, and Sulzberger Halls) are required to enroll in a Quad Upper Class Plan (Standard or Kosher "150 meals per term + 430 Points") as a minimum.

*** Upper-class and Transfer/Visiting students residing elsewhere in Barnard/Columbia housing and all full-time commuters are required to enroll in a Convenience Meal Plan (choice of Standard or Kosher "30 Meals with No Points," "15 Meals with 150 Points," or "300 Points Only") as a minimum.

Barnard students will automatically be enrolled in a default meal plan based on their commuter status or residence hall assignment.  If a Barnard student wishes to choose a different meal plan within the requirements above, she may select a plan through eBear (available under the Account Info tab, click Meal Plan Change), and submit any additional cost to the Bursar.

Columbia students and Barnard VISP students must print meal contracts (below) and submit them to Bursar by scan (to Bursar@barnard.edu), fax (to 212-854-3888), or mail (to Barnard Bursar, 3009 Broadway, NY, NY 10027-6598).

Study Abroad

After a student files a Notice of Study Leave with Barnard's Dean for Study Abroad, her tuition and fees for one term abroad will be $21,075 plus health insurance payable to Barnard. All other costs (housing, board, other fees, etc.) are paid directly to the institution abroad at their own rate.

Payment of Barnard charges is due by August 1, 2012 for the fall 2012 term and by December 1, 2012 for the spring 2013 term. However, if you wish Barnard to pay your tuition abroad before these dates, we require your Barnard invoice to be resolved a month earlier. Barnard will not be able to pay your tuition abroad until the Barnard bill has been resolved.
