Cashless Campus Initiative

We appreciate your continued feedback and patience as we work through this transition. As a reminder, the Cashier’s Office will remain closed to walk-in customers and beginning July 1, 2021 will only accept deposits containing currency by appointment for limited purposes. Deposits of checks may be placed in the drop box in SUB 1 outside of room 1501.

We are exploring additional payment options that will enable Mason to minimize payment handling on campus and will provide periodic updates. Information on transitioning departmental currency and cash collections to Mason Marketplace is below. For specific questions on situations or alternative payment methods please contact

What does Cashless Campus mean?

In an effort to reduce contact, improve the safety, eliminate manual processes, and increase security over transactions, all departments are requested to convert currency and check collection to Mason Marketplace. Students are encouraged to access Bill + Payment for tuition and fee payments. Additional information for student payments is available on the Cashier’s Office webpage.


Transition to Mason Marketplace

Mason Marketplace is the currently available eCommerce solution for the Mason community. Powered by TouchNet Marketplace Suite, the Mason Marketplace makes it easy for departments and campus organizations to create, manage and operate online storefronts, registration sites and secure payment portals with minimal training and seamless financial integration. Click here to explore more.

Current Alternatives to Currency Collection
  • Develop an online store front for your unit, department, event or organization to collect credit card payments in advance or onsite using a QR code. Please visit the Mason Marketplace webpage to learn more.
  • Inform your clients/participants that cash will not be accepted ahead of time and encourage them to bring a check, money order, or payment card to the event.
Department Check Collection Guidance
  • Recurring payments or those with high transaction volumes (i.e., rental payments, event registrations, etc.) received by the department should be transitioned to Mason Marketplace.  
  • Sporadic and intermittent revenue (i.e., payment refunds, incoming sponsorships, etc.) received by the department may be placed in the drop box in SUB 1 outside of room 1501. Please include a Cash Receipt detailing the deposit instructions.
