Wellesley College Meal Program

Wellesley students cross-registered at MIT are automatically provided with a meal allowance to be used on campus during MIT's Fall and Spring semesters. The allowance is accessible using their MIT ID card (or mobile device) at checkout.

The Wellesley plan is added at the beginning of each semester once the registration is finalized.  You may check mycard.mit.edu to see if the plan has been added to your account.  It will be listed as "Wellesley Students".  You may also see a plan called "TechCASH Flex" which is available to all students and is a plan that cannot be used until funds are added by the student.

The allowance is valid for either lunch or dinner Monday through Friday.  This is an allowance, not a meal plan and there is a dollar limit to the allowance provided for each meal:


Lunch (11:00 am-4:59 pm) = $13.75

Dinner (5:00 pm-12:00 am) = $16.25


Please note that the Wellesley meal plan program is processed differently than MIT TechCASH or Dining Dollars as it adds a step for the cashier during checkout (if a balance remains after the allowance is applied).  If the cashier states a transaction failed, please ask to try again and inform them of your payment method for the remaining balance.
