GrizzCa$h Policies

GrizzCa$h accounts are subject to the terms and conditions in the GrizzCa$h Account Disclosure Statement.


GrizzCa$h is a fast, easy and convenient alternative to carrying cash on campus. By activating your GrizzCa$h account, you can use your GrizzCard as a pre-paid debit card for on-campus purchases. Each time you make a purchase using your GrizzCard, your GrizzCa$h account is debited. With the GrizzCa$h feature, you can also take advantage of periodic promotions and discounts.

There is no minimum amount needed to open a GrizzCa$h account. Funds in your GrizzCa$h account carry over from semester to semester and year to year. Your GrizzCa$h account is separate from your meal plan or your Grizz Gold Card banking feature. The appropriate account is debited when you use your card.

GrizzCa$h balance can be checked in the ID Card Office or any VTS machine.
