COVID-19 Updates for Fall Semester

We have been receiving a lot of great questions from parents and students about how we are handling the uncertain nature of the upcoming semester. We have posted some of the most requested information below. Please call our office at 303.415.0067 if you have any questions about our program that are not addressed. Current office hours are M-F, 10AM-3PM. You may also send us an email by clicking here.

  • You can start a Flatiron Meal Plan with any dollar amount. If you have any concerns about the upcoming semester, our suggestion is that you start with a smaller initial deposit and add funds to the account as needed.

  • If for any reason your student needs to leave school early this fall, any remaining balance will just carry over to spring semester or you can request a full refund for the remaining amount. Remaining Flatiron Meal Plan account balances always carry over from semester to semester and year to year.

  • Normally students who enroll in the Flatiron Meal Plan pick up their photo IDs in person at our local office on the Hill. This year, to cut down on foot traffic at the office, we have created an online form where you can request to have your Flatiron Meal Plan card mailed. Once you complete the online sign up process, you will then be given the option to complete the form, upload a picture for your photo ID, and have your card mailed to you. Students can continue to stop by the office to have their cards created in person if that is their preference, but we wanted to give people the option of a mailed card.

  • We’ve moved! Our office is now located at 1163 13th Street, Unit A – right next door to The Sink on the Hill.

What is the Flatiron Meal Plan?

The Flatiron Meal Plan is a prepaid dining and discount card that allows students to purchase meals and shop for groceries at over 100 of their favorite Boulder merchants. Students select their food, present their Flatiron Meal Plan as payment, and the exact amount is deducted from their account. You can start a Flatiron Meal Plan card with any dollar amount, and remaining account balances carry over from semester to semester and year to year – so there are never any wasted dollars.

The Flatiron Meal Plan is a great way to help your student budget his or her food money, and avoid costly ATM fees, overdraft penalties and interest charges. Parents are assured food money is spent as intended, and student dining dollars are stretched as far as possible through exclusive cardholder coupons, deals & discounts.
