The Hillcat card may be used to purchase products or services at locations accepting the card as payment, providing funds have been deposited and are available in the account. Your Hillcat Card is not a credit card. You must first have funds deposited into a Stored Value Account before you can use the card to purchase items at locations which accept the Hillcat Card. Below are the types of Stored Value Accounts and detail of their use:
Cat Cash: Cat Cash is allowed to be used by faculty, staff and enrolled students. Deposits can be made to your Cat Cash account at the Bursar's Office or online RSU eAccounts. Cat Cash can be used to purchase items at food services locations, laundry service, and copier service at the library.
Flex Dollars: Each semester, Flex Dollars in the amount defined in the housing contract are added to residents' cards in University Housing as part of their meal plan. Flex Dollars are only available for meal purchases in the Hillcat Hut and Chapman Dining Hall by University Housing residents. When a student exhausts their Flex Dollars balance, they may add additional value to their card in the form of Cat Cash.
No. Funds on the card are only allowed to be used for their initial purpose, mainly food purchases. Balances are non-refundable.
There are a variety of ways to add money. You can go the Bursar's Office where cash, check or credit card is accepted. The Online Card Office at RSU eAccounts accepts credit card transactions only.
To prevent the unauthorized use of your card you should notify the Card Office as soon as possible. This is especially important should you have funds in a Hillcat Card account. Your card can be frozen which will prevent your card from being used. You may deactivate/reactivate the card yourself in RSU eAccounts.

The magnetic stripe on the card may become worn or scratched, which may render it unreadable. In that case, a free reprint of the card can be obtained at the Card Office. If, through normal wear and tear of the card, it becomes faded or broken, then the Card Office will replace the card free of charge. Obvious abuse of the card will result in a $20.00 replacement fee.
Do not punch a hole in the card. Keep the card away from devices that may clear the encoding on the magnetic stripe. Putting the card on your key-ring may scratch the magnetic stripe of the card, and that could render it unreadable.
Do not let a friend or family member borrow your card. The card may be confiscated and/or a criminal or academic misconduct incident may be filed against the borrower and/or you.
