K-Cash & Dining Dollars 101

Making purchases at KSU is easy when you use your KSU ID. Students have the benefit of depositing money into two separate accounts on their KSU ID cards that can be used on campus to purchase certain goods and services.  Faculty and staff have the benefit of depositing money into a General Declining Balance Account on their KSU ID that can be used to purchase goods and services on campus.
