UMD Campus Cash Card Program

UMD Campus Cash is money (up to $1,000) that you deposit into an online account that connects to your U Card or UMD Campus Cash Card.  UMD Campus Cash Value is part of the UMD Campus Cash Program jointly run by the UMD U Card Office and UMD Cashiers Office.

You can use your U Card or UMD Campus Cash Card as a quick, easy, cashless way to pay by swiping the magnetic stripe on the back of your card through the merchant’s card reader.

Once value has been added to your UMD Campus Cash account, you can use your U Card or UMD Campus Cash Card to make purchases all over campus.  UMD Campus Cash accounts are available to all U Card cardholders, as well as visitors to the University of Minnesota Duluth, and do not require a TCF U Card checking account as they are totally separate card features.  UMD Campus Cash Value is a declining balance, so you cannot have a negative balance.

UMD Campus Cash Value is not cash refundable and does not transfer between the University of Minnesota coordinate campuses.

Before adding money to your U Card or UMD Campus Cash Card account, please read the UMD Campus Cash Account Holder Terms and Conditions, or stop by or email the UMD Cashiers Office to request a paper copy.
