  • Check out a library book
  • Attend sporting events
  • Utilize the Flexible Pre-Paid Account
  • Make photocopies (using your printing allotment)
  • Purchase textbooks
  • Receive student discounts

On-campus students will have their Crimson Card processed in the Campus Life Office in Springwood Hall. Distance Education students will have their Crimson Card processed by their Student Success Coach upon registration.

EZ Deposit

EZ Deposit is a convenient way to make a deposit to your Crimson Card account before the start of a semester so you will have funds readily available for use at the IU East Official Bookstore. You can purchase the textbooks, course materials and other items you may need for the semester. Your EZ Deposit will then be billed to your Bursar account where it may be paid with financial aid (Title IV form must be signed), scholarships, grants, or any other method of payment accepted by the Bursar Office.
