Employees and students may request a refund of their Cardinal Cash balance upon separation from the university (graduation, withdrawal, termination, retirement, etc.). Refunds may only be requested for balances greater than $20.00. If the balance is $20.00 or less, you may spend the remaining balance at participating locations on-campus or off-campus.
Your status must be inactive at the time of the request or a refund will not be issued. For example, if you are a graduating student, the request should be submitted after graduation. If you are an employee leaving the university, the refund request should be submitted after you are out of pay status.
Student refunds will be applied to his/her tuition account to cover any outstanding balances. The remaining amount will be refunded to the HigherOne account. Refunds for employees will be issued in the form of a check to the address on file.
Refunds must be requested through the Cardinal Cash Refund Request Form.
