Students may only use one meal per meal period.  They can however use Cougar Cash in addition to meal plan purchases.  This is done in an effort to reduce costs (keep prices down), plan for minimal left overs (fresher food), and discourage the "sharing" of Meal Plan Accounts (students are not permitted to allow others to use their meals plans).  The PARC Dining Hall is all you can eat.

  • get the most for your money
  • enjoy unlimited seconds in PARC dining hall
  • become educated about what foods you should choose 

When you arrive on campus, you will be issued a Clinton Community College identification card. This card will allow you to make food purchases in either dining location when you purchase Cougar Cash or a Meal Plan. Every student, faculty, and staff member is eligible to purchase a Meal Plan and/or Cougar Cash.

If you have a Cougar Cash account, not only will you be able to buy meals in the dining locations, but you can also use the funds to special order pizza, sandwiches, birthday cakes, buffalo wings and more. Stop by, and see what we can do!

Do you have a home sick college student? Or are they missing a special event, birthday or holiday?  Maybe stressed out? Why not send them something special! We have an anytime cake, pizzas, cookies, monthly treats and much much more for you to choose from! Allow 48 hours (not including weekends) for processing. Birthday cake requests should be sent 2 weeks prior to the delivery date.
