Denison Dollars


A Denison Dollars account is a prepaid, declining balance account that can be used on campus for purchases at the University Bookstore, Copy Center, Mail Center, all Dining Services locations, Bandersnatch (our student coffee house), campus vending machines, and laundry rooms in eighteen of the residence halls.

Money can be added to your account at any time. Any unused funds at the end of the semester will be carried over to the next semester. Provided there are no outstanding debts to the university, unspent funds can be refunded at the end of the academic year upon written request to Student Accounts. (This happens automatically when a student graduates or withdraws from the University.) Funds cannot be refunded mid-semester.
