Payment Processing Changes
The preferred method of payment for student organizations has now
moved to the Student-Held Pcard!
Student Purchasing Card Program
Campus Org. Accounting will be beginning the process of eliminating vouchers for reimbursements beginning
July 1. The method of payment will be changing from vouchers to the
Student Held P-card (VISA)
- Emergency (this will be up the COA manager’s discretion)
- Vendor doesn’t accept credit cards at all. (Sam’s Club update: 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.
- Stipend or honoraria payments which require a W9 for tax reporting purposes
- Mileage (very few cases of these and we prefer to pay for gas directly with a p-card)
Treasurer Training: Contact the Campus Organization Office,
294-1633 to register for
training via Blackboard.
Effective March 1, 2013, same-day emergency checks are no longer available. However, since checks are
now written five days per week, there is less of a need for same-day checks. When a check needs to be picked up by
a departmental representative, the check will be available the next day in the Accounting Office in the
Administrative Services Building. Departments requiring special handling should attach a note to the voucher to make
that request. Since there is a $25.00 fee for special handling, it should only be requested when necessary.
If you have questions, please contact Jamie Rehlander, 294-5182
