A Prepaid Spending Account

Triton Cash allows students to pay for food, laundry, books, and other supplies using their UC San Diego ID card. The Triton Cash Card is accepted at more than 60 locations, on- and off-campus.

Create/load the Triton Card

You or your student can use cash, check, credit or debit cards to deposit funds into the student's Triton Cash account. When the student presents the ID card to a vendor, the purchase amount is subtracted from the Triton Cash account.
