Starting this fall, the University of Wisconsin will be implementing a new meal plan for students. The new plan has been a subject of controversy since the announcement that the pay-as-you-go system UW was known for would be changing.
Through the end of the 2017-18 school year, there was no official “meal plan” for UW students. Students were able to swipe their Wiscards inside any on-campus facilities offering food options and pay for each item à la carte style. There was no minimum required amount of money to be put on Wiscards.
