Cardinal Cash

Cardinal Cash is a pre-paid declining-balance spending account tied to your Fisher ID card. It is accepted at the College Bookstore and most vending machines on campus. It can also be used for printing when (or if) you exhaust your printing allowance for the term. It is designed to help students, faculty, and staff eliminate the need to carry cash on campus. There are no costs involved in using the account.

The use of the Cardinal Cash account is governed by the Cardinal Cash Terms & Conditions [pdf]. By adding value, or using your Cardinal Cash account, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions in this agreement. Please read this document thoroughly.

Benefits of Cardinal Cash

  • Accepted at the College Bookstore, vending machines, and computer labs for printing on campus.
  • Convenient – Make purchases with your Fisher ID card. No need to carry cash, exact change, or debit/credit cards.
  • Pre-paid – Only spend what you have. Add value to or use your account with no additional costs, interest or fees. Purchases made with your card are deducted from your available balance immediately after you use your card – you always know your balance.
  • Fast & Easy to Use – Just present your ID to the cashier or swipe it at a vending machine! With one click you can use Cardinal Cash funds if you use up your printing credit.
  • Easy to Add Value – Add funds to your account from your checking account via web, mail, or phone. Funds can also be added at the Bursar's Office via cash or check or transferred from a credit balance on your student account.
  • Safe & Secure – If you lose your ID card, the value will be transferred to a new card.
  • Value Carries Over – Cardinal Cash funds carry over from semester to semester and year to year as long as you remain a student at St. John Fisher College.
