Now Available! New Program Expense Card
Effective October 2, the Business Expense Card program was discontinued by the bank.
In preparation for this change, the Controller’s Office developed the new Program Expense Card issued through Bank of America. This credit card can be used for educational programs
(e.g., Study Abroad, Summer Programs, etc.) and participant incentive payments.
Before you can take advantage of this new program, training is required. Visit our
PeopleSoft Finance Training Schedule to register for a time that works best for you.
For additional information and resources, visit our Treasury Management page and the Program Expense Card section on the Business Manager page.
If you have any questions, please contact our Treasury Team, firstname.lastname@example.org.
