What is Spartan Cash?
Turn your ID card into quick cash. It's simple! Just deposit funds into a Spartan Cash debit account then flash your MSU ID all over campus and the community to conveniently get what you want, when you want it.
Spartan Cash is a declining balance account available as a free service to MSU students, faculty and staff through Michigan State University. Anyone with a balance on their MSU ID is able to purchase goods and services at participating merchant locations. Funds can be deposited by phone, by mail or online. Faculty, staff, or students present their MSU ID to participating merchants and purchases will be debited from the pre-deposited funds, similar to an electronic checking account.
If you experience difficulty checking your balance, please call our office (517) 355-2274 Monday-Friday 8am-5pm for assistance. The system may have trouble locating your account, especially if you have both a student ID (APID) and a faculty staff ID (ZPID).
