RamCash accounts remain active and rollover as long as you are at CSU. Your balance, including any remaining Meal Plan RamCash allowance, will carry over.

RamCash FAQs

Does RamCash carry over to the next semester?

Yes.  Your balance, including any remaining Meal Plan RamCash allowance will carry over to the next semester.

Can I withdraw the balance from my RamCash account?

RamCash is a declining balance account, not a debit account. Therefore you cannot withdraw money once you have purchased RamCash. However, you may close your RamCash account upon request. There is a $25 processing fee that will be deducted from your balance upon account closure. You will need to complete and submit a RamCash Account Closure form in the RamCard Office. You have the option of receiving your remaining funds via a credit to your University Account (3-5 business days to process) or with a mailed check (up to 10 weeks to process).

How can a parent or family member deposit RamCash to their student’s account?

The student must first accept the Terms and Conditions.  You will need to know your student’s CSU ID number and can deposit at www.ramcash.colostate.edu. Check with your student to confirm the deposit, balance, and other account history detail.

RamCash Account Terms and Conditions

  1. These terms and conditions apply to the individual participant for whom the account is opened and the RamCard Office. This agreement governs the creation of a RamCash Account, which is an option available to students, employees, associates, and visitors of Colorado State University. RamCash Accounts are administered by the RamCard Office.
  2. These terms and conditions begin when the RamCash account is activated and ends when the account is closed.
  3. This account is non-transferable. Additional identification may be required to ensure that only the participant uses the account.
  4. The RamCard Office will determine the goods and services available for purchase with this account.
  5. The participant’s RamCard, RamCash Express Card, Conference Guest Card, or Library Community Patron Card will be the access device for the RamCash Account. The card or card number must be presented at the time of purchase and is the only means of accessing the participant’s account.
  6. Dormant accounts are defined as those accounts that have no transaction activity for at least twelve consecutive months and are held by participants who were not employed at CSU for at least the previous sixteen months, or were not enrolled as a Fort Collins CSU student during the four most recent terms — the current term and previous three terms.
  7. Dormant accounts are subject to a monthly account maintenance charge of $3.00, or the remaining account balance, whichever is smaller.
