Card Accounts

Anyone with a GWorld card can add funds to make convenient purchases at GWorld merchants and Dining Partners.

Accounts: Dining Cash and Colonial Cash

GW offers two different accounts for GWorld cardholders.

  • Dining Cash:  All undergraduate students living on campus are required to participate in the GW Dining Program based on their year in school. Meal plans consist of Dining Cash accepted at all GWorld dining & grocery establishments.
  • Colonial Cash is the standard GWorld spending account available to all cardholders. Colonial Cash is accepted at all GWorld merchants, Dining Partners, and services both on-campus and off-campus. 


Depositing Colonial Cash and Dining Cash is easy and can be done at our office, online, or can be billed to your student account on a case-by-case basis. Be sure to review the deposit and refund policy guidelines before you make a deposit.
