In order to accept credit, charge and debit card payments, including payments via the Internet, the unit must:

  • Receive prior permission from the Treasury Operations
  • Ensure payment processes and related recordkeeping adhere to University accounting guidelines, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and all applicable legislation

Authorized units may accept Visa, MasterCard, Wildcard, and/or American Express payments. Departments that accept the Wildcard may accept any ATM card.
