Controller's Department


Iowa State University has an agreement with American Express to provide corporate charge cards, without cost, to employees who travel on University business. This service is provided as an alternative to obtaining travel advances, which are discouraged for domestic business travel. Once the card is issued, you are personally liable for all charges made on your Corporate Card. The card balance must be paid in full each month. American Express Corporate Cards may only be used for authorized travel expenses while on university business. They may not be used for personal purchases.


For questions about the American Express Corporate Card program, please contact Cheryl Ervin, Administrative Specialist.
