Meal Plan Modifications

USC students with a documented medical history may qualify for relief from a meal plan administered by campus dining or their fraternity or sorority. 

Carolina Food Co. makes it a priority to provide an enjoyable dining experience for everyone, regardless of dietary needs and preferences. We offer a variety of resources and programming to make this possible. Carolina Food Co. has a registered dietician, Cody Ellis, on staff who offers consultations to students with allergies or related conditions. Please reach out to Cody via email (

The Temporary Conditions and Injuries (TCI) coordinator also works closely with Fraternity and Sorority Life to provide appropriate accommodations or modifications as needed.
