Special Handling Fees of $50 are charged for any check requesting turnaround of less than 5 business days or to pick up a check. To avoid these fees, be sure to submit paperwork timely. If you have a deadline on a payment request, be sure to add a note to your voucher and send Jamie an email at jlr@iastate.edu so proper priority may be placed on your request.


Payment Processing Changes

The purchasing method of payment for student organizations is the Student-Held Pcard! See the Student Purchasing Card Program for details! Campus Org. Accounting has eliminated the use of vouchers for payments. The method of payment is the Student Held P-card (VISA) with the following exceptions for making payments to the vendor / payee directly:
  1. Emergency (this will be up the COA manager’s discretion)
  2. Vendor doesn’t accept credit cards at all. (Sam’s Club exception: since this vendor doesn’t accept VISA credit cards, we are allowing groups to purchase a gift card from Wal-Mart and use it at Sam’s Club. The group would attach both receipts to the transaction in Access Plus and must be within $10 on the amounts used vs. balance on the gift card). See Tim Livengood for details.
  3. Stipend or honoraria payments which require a W9 for tax reporting purposes
  4. Mileage (very few cases of these and we prefer to pay for gas directly with a p-card)
  5. P-card transactions which have been moved to a U-Bill with proof of U-Bill payment and original, itemized receipt.
