Travel and Expense Cards are used to pay for an individual cardholder’s business expenses, such as travel, books, or professional memberships. These cards are held by those who travel or incur individual expenses while conducting University business. If you currently carry a departmental credit card that you use for business travel and expenses, it will be replaced with the new Travel and Expense Card.
Departmental Purchasing Cards (formerly referred to as departmental credit cards) are used to pay for purchases that benefit your department, such as catering, supplies, and recurring charges.
