Student Services

Payment of student fees at both UT and PSCC gives Volunteer Bridge students access to a variety of student services at both campuses.

Dining

Volunteer Bridge students are not required to purchase a UT meal plan. Students beginning the program in second summer session can purchase a summer meal plan (optional). Volunteer Bridge students who wish to purchase a UT meal plan for fall/spring can choose any of the meal plans offered by Volunteer Dining (commuter, non-commuter, or apartment, regardless of status). Students select their meal plan (or no meal plan) when they contract for housing. This contract is binding, and meal plans cannot be canceled. However, they can be changed up to three times up to the 26th day of the semester (fall/spring).
