Medical Meal Plan Conversion Process

There is no exemption from the financial obligation of a mandatory meal plan. If you have a medical condition requiring a special diet, you may submit a Medical Meal Plan Conversion Form for review. Refer to the submission requirements in the column to the right. 

If approved, your Meal Plan will be converted to a Medical Meal Plan which must be used prior to the end of the semester. Important Note: You will be charged for the Meal Plan regardless of plan status.

Financial hardship exemptions are not evaluated by Dining Services. Contact UNT Financial Aid Office for assistance.
