Indiana University has encouraged all campuses to curtail default rates. In an effort to do this, financial aid will credit to student accounts on Tuesday after the first week of classes. This means the first possible day for the Bursar’s office to start releasing refunds will be on Wednesday during the second week of classes.
Please plan to either pay out of pocket for books or elect to utilize CrimsonCash to purchase books at our Barnes and Noble bookstore. To make a CrimsonCash deposit visit crimsoncard.iu.edu, click ‘Manage Your ID Card’, and login in with your username and passphrase. Click ‘Deposit’ in the menu bar and follow the prompts. CrimsonCash deposits are immediately available for use. Financial aid may pay for a Crimson Cash deposit. All Crimson Card deposits are billed to your bursar account.
A Title IV form must be signed for Financial Aid to pay for CrimsonCard deposits.
This process will be similar for the spring semester and will continue for fall and spring semesters only. Summer, due to the numerous class start dates, will continue to have aid start crediting accounts 10 days prior to the start of your classes.
You can learn more about EZ Deposits by visiting the Crimson Card web pages.
