Get a Temporary Limit Increase Step-by-Step

LAST UPDATED: January 23, 2015

Important Information

If you have a business need to increase the single transaction limit or monthly purchasing limit, you may apply for a temporary or permanent limit increase for a University credit card.

Step-by-Step

  • 1

    If the purchase is for capital equipment, goods or services from a contract supplier, or payment to an individual, the transaction should be done through Prime Financials, not on a University credit card. Contact the Financial Service Center for more information.

  • 2

    If an exception and limit increase may still be warranted, complete the limit change request section on either the Departmental Purchasing Card Application or the Travel and Expense Card Application. Obtain the appropriate departmental signatures for approval, and scan and send the form to the Financial Service Center.
     

  • 3

    Some limit increases may require additional authorization from the Office of Finance and Treasury. The Financial Service Center will notify you when the limit request has been approved and completed.

  • 4

    If the request was for a temporary limit increase, the card's limits will be reset back to their original limits based on the information on the request form. No additional action is needed.
