Full-time faculty and staff in active, good standing with the university are eligible to apply for a Purchasing Card or Travel Card depending on what your specific purchasing needs are. Line Manager and Business Officer approvals are required to process new card applications.
Purchasing Cards and Travel Cards should be closed at least two weeks prior to the transfer, to ensure that all transactions post and are reconciled to the correct COA in Ignite before employment details change. If a Purchasing Card or Travel Card is needed in your new role, you'll need to complete an Application and User Agreement, obtaining appropriate approvals from your new department.
More information can be found on Termination, Transfer, and Account Closure.

Cardholders must complete the form, attaching relevant documentation (quote, invoice, etc.), for a card increase to be considered. Business Officer approval will be required.

Questions about your card account or assistance with resetting a password can be directed to email@example.com, or to JP Morgan by calling the number on the back of the card.
JP Morgan does not have a PaymentNet app yet, however while traveling you can use PaymentNet on a smartphone by going to https://m.jpmorgan.com/card in your phone's browser. You will be prompted to register the device prior to accessing your account.
To add PaymentNet Mobile to your home screen:
JP Morgan sends cardholders an email when a fraudulent transaction is suspected, and temporarily suspends the card until the transaction is verified as authorized.
If you'd like to sign up for SMS text notifications of fraud alerts, useful when traveling, you can do so via ccportal.jpmorgan.com. These alerts notify you of suspicious activity on your card and allow you to quickly reply to validate the transactions.
JP Morgan Fraud Prevention can also be reached at 1-800-316-6056 (US) or the number on the back of the card. If outside the United States, call 847-488-3748.
