Payment Options

Preferred Travel Payment Options:

  • Pcard: Intended for use if traveling more than twice a year or spending University funds regularly.  The cardholder should be used for all purchases and travel, including meals. Click to request a Pcard   
  • Declining Balance Card: Intended for access to cash and for one time use travel and expenses when an individual does not have a Pcard or personal funds.  Click to request a Declining Balance Debit Card  
  • Personal Funds should only be used if an individual is not eligible for a Pcard. 


Cash Advances will be very rarely handed out and will need to be authorized in advance by the Business Office with reasoning as to why one of the options below are not feasible. Please contact the Travel Team if you need to request an advance.
Travel advance requests in the form of a SVDC or Cash, along with the necessary forms can be found in section 311 of the Business & Finance Procedures.
