CrimsonCard is the official university identification card that can have spending accounts associated with it for use of purchases both on and off campus-- see CrimsonCash Account for more information. The balance exists due to a deposit made to your CrimsonCash account or it may be a carryover from a deposit made to a legacy campus card account, such as Jagtag, CampusAccess, UCard, CougarCard, etc
Using your CrimsonCard for door access, printing transactions (which utilize your print quota), or meal plan transactions does not affect your CrimsonCash account status. You can still use your CrimsonCard for these actions; only your CrimsonCash account is considered dormant.
If you anticipate using your CrimsonCard in the future as a form of payment, you can keep your account active as described above. If you don’t plan on using the card again, you can request the balance be refunded to you (a $15 fee will be deducted from the balance); see instructions above. If you fail to do this within 30 months of the account being dormant, the remaining balance will be forfeited to the University.
No. If your balance is less than $15, the account will be reduced by $3 each month until the balance is zero (0), at which time the account will be closed automatically. No further fees or charges will be assessed to you after the account is closed.
If the account balance is more than $15, it can be closed immediately by requesting a refund as described above. Otherwise, you will receive a follow-up email notification on the 27th of each month verifying that the fee was applied to your CrimsonCash balance until the balance reaches zero (0) and the account is closed automatically.
