What is it?
The University provides assistance to faculty and staff in obtaining an American Express corporate credit card which may be used to cover travel costs.
Why is it important?
Using the University Corporate Travel Card means that you as an individual do not need to carry the charges on your own personal credit card; however, the University does not pay the charges on this card directly, nor does it take responsibility for interest charges on overdue accounts.
You may still need to request an advance from the University if you pay for travel costs well in advance of a trip so that you can pay the Corporate card as your statement becomes due.
Where do I find more information?
Information on obtaining and managing a Corporate Travel Card is available on Procurement Services‘ website.
