Georgetown College provides several board plans for its residential population and meal options for commuters. Any exceptions to participation are made only with the approval of the Director of Housing as noted below. Students participating in the board plan in effect enter into a contract with the College to provide meals. Since the initial cost of the board plan has been discounted to accommodate traditional patterns of absenteeism by the student body, no further discounts are available for meals missed. It is important to remember that the College incurs substantial overhead expenses in the process of being ready to provide meals for all students, whether or not they actually eat the meals. Certain special diets will be prepared under the orders of a physician at no extra charge.
All students seeking exceptions to the Collegeâ€™s board requirements must complete a waiver request form available from the Associate Dean of Students before exceptions will be permitted. Contact the Student Life Office at 8004 with specific questions regarding the waiver process. Students in the following circumstance may, however, submit a request for a waiver of this requirement to the Associate Dean of Students:
- Students whose off-campus classes and/or work prevents attendance at two of three meals each day of the board plan.
- Other appropriate reasons as determined by the Vice President for Student Life.
