...whether or not they live on campus!

The only way around it is to not go full time, and 98% of U of L students are ft according to the KY Dept of Ed page. This is a completely ridiculous means of further hiking tuition on students while U of L has an endowment that amounts to $36,000+ per every student

That is insane! Can you post a link, please? My fiance is a professor there, and did not know about this policy. U of L needs to get a grip.

What are they thinking? I remember when I went there the School required everyone to have health insurance. That made some sense since they a plan through the campus infirmary that was reasonable. This however, is just overboard- $1,000 a semster?

i go to school in connecticut, which i know is really different but my college has this rule. however, for people who live off campus, there is a cheaper "commuter meal plan" that you can buy.


is the plan money or actually meal vouchers? my school did money which was not so bad because i just did my food shopping at the on-campus market instead of the regular super market. if your school does meal vouchers though, then it is pretty ridiculous.

It looks like it is only $250 per semester, but still it is a back handed attempt at raising tuition on people who absolutly do not need a meal plan.

Here is the CJ article on it
