Throughout the academic year, students are able to change meal plans between OSCA and CDS.

No changes are made the first two weeks of each semester; however, changes can be made every two weeks beginning the third week of each semester and ending on the first of the last month.

Because there are limited spaces in OSCA, OSCA has a waitlist managed by the Membership Secretary/Director. To get on the waitlist, applicants should complete the waitlist form online. If a spot opens in their first choice co-op, students are automatically placed in the co-op and removed from the waitlist. If a spot opens in a second-choice or lower co-op, students are placed in that co-op and remain on the waitlist until an opening appears in one of their higher-ranked co-ops. See the OSCA Website for more information about the waitlist process.

Students who obtain OSCA dining will have their Meal Plans processed by CDS on designated Fridays upon notification from OSCA. Unused Flex Points do not transfer to the OSCA board program and are lost when leaving a CDS meal plan. OSCA invoices are processed and mailed to the student's OCMR. College credits will be reflected in the next month's term bill.
