Gold Card Plus

Gold Card Plus Account

When funded, the Gold Card acts as a debit card on campus; however, this card does not have an interest rate or the potential for students to get in over their heads financially. Each purchase is automatically deducted from the account balance, so students do not have to worry about carrying cash to take care of the little things that occur during the day.

The Gold Card Plus Account is used to purchase goods and services on campus. It is not your Student Account. Located in the Spencer Center, 1st Floor, Room 116, Student Accounts is where all tuition, housing, meal plan and other educational fee payments are received and recorded.

The Gold Card is accepted at all on campus locations including; Rastall Dining Hall, Benji's, Preserve, Colorado Coffee, Local Goods, Worner Desk, Mail Room, the Colorado College Bookstore, and other Non-Meal Plan Restaurants.

The Gold Card is not an ATM/Cash card. Refunds are given only at the end of the year(when requested). Exceptions are made for withdrawal, leave of absence, transfer, etc. To request a refund, contact the Student Accounts Office. The balance will be transferred to Student Account and is first applied to any debts owed Colorado College. Credit is then disbursed by check in 5 to 6 business days.

Due to federal banking regulations, students may not use Gold Card Plus Account funds to make tuition or class deposit payments. Due to copyright laws, students are not allowed to use their Gold Card Plus Account to purchase printed materials directly from professors/departments. The Colorado College Bookstore will carry all printed materials required for a class, or the bookstore textbook coordinator can place a special order.

All transactions occur online and in real time. The Student Accounts Office has a record of each transaction, location where purchase occurred, and type of tender used (i.e., meals, Tiger Bucks, or Gold Card).  Students can view each transaction, location where purchase occurred, and type of tender used (i.e., meals, Tiger Bucks, or Gold Card Plus online. Statements of the Gold Card account are available to students upon request.
