All About Campus Cash

Campus Cash is an optional account that may be set up for a staff member's convenience. This account allows you to purchase goods and services on campus with your AppCard. Campus Cash cannot be used off campus and cannot be withdrawn as cash.

Two types of Campus Cash are available:

  • Faculty/Staff Charge Account: available to full-time permanent Faculty or Staff members. It acts like a credit card with balances being paid by payroll deduction.
  • Faculty/Staff Debit Account: available to all employees, including temporary employees. It works just like a debit card, and you can deposit additional funds at any time online.

Campus Cash Charge Accounts

Full-time faculty and staff may open a Campus Cash Charge Account in one of the following ways:

  • By visiting the AppCard Office during regular business hours with your completed registration form.
  • By returning your completed registration form via campus mail or fax (828-262-6144).

Deactivate Your Lost or Stolen AppCard

The person to whom the AppCard is issued is responsible for its use, including any misuse. If your card is lost or stolen, you will be held responsible until it is reported lost or stolen.

Your AppCard is the ONLY access to your Meal Plan and/or Campus Cash. If you lose your card, report it to the AppCard Office (828-262-6141), so it can be invalidated. After 5:00 pm and on weekends, report lost AppCards to University Police or online through your AppalNET account. See AppCard Online for details.
