Approved Payment Cards

The approved methods of payment are University Corporate Travel Cards and University Purchasing Cards.

Corporate Travel Card

The corporate travel card is a joint liability card. The credit card statement is sent directly to the traveler. Travelers may opt to have their reimbursement routed directly to U.S. Bank through the e-reimbursement system, or pay the statement personally. To apply for a corporate travel card, fill out an online application.

View more information about the travel card on the US Bank Corporate Travel Card page.

Purchasing Card

For information on obtaining a purchasing card, and restrictions of use, contact your institution’s purchasing card administrator.

Personal Cards

Eligibility to use a personal card for travel is dependent on the institution. Contact your institution’s travel manager to learn more.


Travel Funded from External Sources (i.e. grants)

For travel expenses funded by sponsored programs (e.g. grants or contracts), the terms of the applicable grant or contract will take precedence if more restrictive than University travel policies.

Travelers should book travel using UW System Travel policies regardless of funding source.
