How to Obtain a Purchasing Travel Card

The purchasing card cannot be used for travel-related expenses unless prior approval has been obtained from the cardholder’s Department and Dean’s Office.  The Dean’s Office determines whether travel is added to an existing purchasing card or if a new card is required for the travel-related expenses.  In order to obtain a purchasing card setup for travel, the following requirements must be met:

  1. Obtain permission from your Department/Dean’s Office
  2. Complete the online Cardholder Application and Agreement which will be automatically routed on to your Site Manager and Dean’s Office for approval. Indicate the card will be used for travel-related expenses
  3. Attend a Purchasing Card Travel Training session (and the Purchasing Card Policies and Procedures class if the cardholder has not attended a session in the past)
