Why LionCash+?

It Gives You Buying Power

LionCash+ is accepted at most restaurants, shops, and stores on and around Penn State campuses.

It’s Safe

Your photo id+ card is more secure than non-photo debit or credit cards. It's safer than carrying cash and your money is secure if you report your card lost or stolen. Plus, your funds are available immediately when you receive a replacement id+ card. 

It Saves You Money

You can receive discounts or incentives at many participating locations every time you use LionCash+, including a 10 percent discount at most on-campus Food Services locations and discounts offered at our Featured Merchants of the Month.

It's Convenient

Using your Access Account User ID and password, you can check your balance, view your transaction history, deactivate a lost or stolen card, or make a deposit using a Visa or MasterCard debit or credit card.

It's Protected

Active accounts remain open and carry forward from semester to semester and from year to year. You can even request a refund when you graduate or leave Penn State. 

It's Easy

Anyone - even family and friends - can make a deposit from anywhere with just a click of the mouse, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

It Has Your Back

LionCash+ complements the Campus Meal Plan. Running short on dining dollars? Deposit funds into your LionCash+ account. When the Campus Meal Plan account is depleted, the cash registers at on-campus dining facilities will automatically deduct from your LionCash+ account, providing the optimal meal plan pricing. This eliminates the possibility that you'll need to forfeit remaining dining dollars at the end of spring semester.

Note: LionCash+ will not be accepted for the purchase of packaged alcohol or illicit drug paraphernalia. Merchants are also prohibited from accepting LionCash+ in exchange for cash. If you end up returning merchandise that you bought with LionCash+, funds will be credited directly to your LionCash+ account in accordance with the merchant's return policy.
