What's CaseCash?

CaseCash is a declining balance tender loaded on your CaseOneCard. It may be used at a variety of food and non-food locations both on and off campus, including the University Bookstore. $1 in CaseCash equals $1 of purchasing power. 

The CaseCash included with your meal plan is deposited into your account at the beginning of each semester. You can add additional CaseCash in the following ways:

  • Include it as part of your tuition in increments of $100, up to $1000 per semester. This option can only be selected online at the MyHousing website. Funds will then deposited to your CaseCash account at the beginning of the semester and included as part of your tuition bill. *NOTE* Choices made for the Fall semester WILL NOT roll over to Spring semester. If you want additional CaseCash billed to your tuition, you must select that option each semester through the MyHousing website.
  • Deposit funds online by charging it to a Mastercard or Visa (after your CaseCash account is established) by visiting
  • Use a credit card, cash or check at Access Services, 10900 Euclid Ave. , Crawford Hall Rm 18, Cleveland , OH 44106-7084. If mailing a check, please include student name, ID number, CWRU email address and a signature requesting deposit. Cash deposits must be made in person. Cash deposits are also available at the Value Transfer Stations located at Wade Commons, Thwing Center and Fribley Commons. Cash withdrawals are unavailable
  • CaseCash, whether included as part of your meal plan or purchased separately, expires only after 10 years and the full balance on your accounts at the end of a semester is rolled over to the next semester. Auxiliary Services does not charge any fees to account holders, except for account closure reimbursements(see below).

CaseCash Reimbursements

Unused CaseCash will carry over from semester to semester and from year to year, and it is refundable at the end of spring semester or upon separation from CWRU. CaseCash refunds must be requested in writing by e-mailing from your CWRU email account.

The remaining CaseCash, (including Meal Plan CaseCash) minus a $15.00 administrative fee, will be mailed to the primary student address as it appears in SIS. Students are responsible for ensuring that the mailing address in SIS is current and correct.
