Credit card picture with text: Pcard, need pcard information?

The ISU Purchasing Card (PCard) is a Visa card available for faculty and staff, designed to reduce the use of petty cash funds, small-dollar purchase orders, and eliminate the use of personal funds. PCard usage is restricted to ISU business purchases only, and may not be used for personal expenditures or ISU travel related purchases.

All PCard users are:

  • Required to abide by all ISU purchasing policies when purchasing with the ISU PCard.
  • Subject to the PCard Policy in addition to the mandatory PCard Training Course.
  • Eligible to apply for a PCard, if you are an ISU faculty or staff member and with department/unit approval.

Oversight for the PCard program is provided by the University PCard Administrator and designated individuals administering the program in each department. The Purchasing Department monitors compliance with the PCard program policies and procedures.

 

How Do I Get A New PCard?                                               

  1. Fill out a PCard New Cardholder Application
  2. Send completed application to buyers@isu.edu.
  3. When Purchasing receives the PCard application, an invitation will be sent with instructions on how to take mandatory Moodle training.
  4. After training has been completed, call 282-3112 to set up a time to obtain your new ISU PCard.

Purchasing will process your application as quickly as possible. PCards are normally received within 10 business days.
