What is FLEX?

Flex Dollars (sometimes just referred to as "Flex"), is money preloaded on your Seton Hill ID Card that can be spent in either of our on-campus dining facilities. It’s like a debit card for food. Each time a purchase is made, the sale amount is deducted from the account balance. You can add to your Flex account at any time by making a payment in our Student Accounts Office.  (All deposits have a $25 minimum.)

Flex can be used in multiple ways:

  • You purchased the 14 meals a week meal plan and want an additional meal. Purchase it with your Flex Dollars.
  • Your friend from home is coming up to the Hill for a visit. You can pay for their meal using your Flex Dollars.
  • Your meal plan covers your basic meal in the Griffin’s Cove, but you want an additional slice of pizza. Purchase it with your Flex Dollars.
  • You plan on meeting with your study group this weekend and you will all need a pick-me-up. You can pre-order a dozen of your favorite cookies!

Flex Dollars carry over with your meal plan from semester to semester, but are not refunded at the end of the academic year.

Residency Requirement

All full-time undergraduate students are required to live in the residence halls for six semesters (not counting summer or January terms) or until they achieve senior status unless granted permission by the Office of Residence Life. Permission will be granted if the student provides evidence and qualifies for one or more of the following conditions:

  • The student is 24 years of age or older.
  • The student served and/or is discharged from the Armed Forces.
  • The student is living with parent(s), legal guardian(s), or close family member(s) and commuting to school. The parent(s) or legal guardian(s) must live within a 50-mile radius of campus.
  • The student is married and/or has one or more dependent children whom he/she supports and who live with him/her.

This policy is effective beginning with students entering Seton Hill University for fall 2016.
