What is Registration Deposit?
Available only to IU students who are registered for classes, Registration Deposit is a convenient way to add money to your CrimsonCard before the start of a semester.
Enrolling in Registration Deposit
To enroll in 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 on your CrimsonCard approximately two weeks before the start of the semester. 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 rollover 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.
Removing/Cancelling a Deposit
If you make a deposit but later decide it isn't needed, you can request to cancel and/or remove the amount from your Bursar account and CrimsonCard by completing the Remove/Cancel your Deposit form (CAS authentication required).
