What is a Registration Deposit?
Registration Deposit is a convenient way for students to make a deposit to their CrimsonCash account when registering for classes for the upcoming semester.
Enrolling in the Registration Deposit
To enroll in the Registration Deposit, select it in the "Optional Services" section during your course registration process.
You can deposit $250, $500, or both options for a total of $750. Funds will be available in your CrimsonCash account approximately two weeks before the start of the semester - see calendar below. This money can be used to purchase textbooks, course materials, and other needed items at any location where CrimsonCard is accepted. And there's no need to worry about expiration—Registration Deposit funds roll over semester to semester, year to year.
The Registration Deposit amount you select is billed to your bursar account and can be paid with financial aid (requires a completed Title IV form), scholarships, grants, 529 funds, or any form of payment accepted by the Bursar Office.
Registration Deposit Calendar
The amount you selected to be deposited to your CrimsonCash account when registering for classes will be available for use on the following days:
|Academic Term||Common Calendar Term Start||Registration Deposit Option Closes||Registration Deposit Posted to CrimsonCash Accounts|

Please note, there is a $15 processing fee to request a refund. The fee will be subtracted from your current balance.
