The MSU PCard, a MasterCard® product, is designed to allow for the direct procurement of low dollar purchases by the faculty and staff through the use of a credit card. The intent of the program is to increase efficiency by eliminating the need for small dollar requisitions, disbursement vouchers and petty cash funds.


PCard purchases result in quicker turnaround time, greater flexibility in ordering, and reduced paperwork. The PCard is to be used for purchases up to or equal to $2,500. There are restrictions with the use of the PCard (i.e. personal use, travel, radioactive material, etc.). For a complete list of the restrictions, as well as other information regarding the PCard, see the Pcard Users Manual.

Card applications are submitted through the Finance System. Upon completion, you will need to complete online training. Financial transactions are processed in the Finance System.
