Your Golden Knights Kash account is an accumulated prepaid declining balance account attached to your Golden Knights Card. This account is not associated with the Dining Dollars account which you receive when you open an on-campus Meal Plan. With this account, money can be deposited onto your card, allowing you to use it like a debit card in a number of locations on campus. Unlike Dining Dollars, Golden Knights Kash can be used at the Campus Store to purchase books, supplies, or Saint Rose apparel or memorabilia, as well as at various print and copy machines located throughout the campus.
