The Travel Card is issued to authorized individuals to purchase domestic and international business travel, and business entertainment good and services.
University employees are eligible for a Travel Card provided they meet the following criteria:
- Full-time, active employment status in good standing with the University
- Complete the application, with approvals by the Line Manager and Business Officer

After all approvals are received, the applicant will be forwarded training information and a card user agreement to review.
Cardholders are responsible for all charges made on the Travel Card. The Cardholder that completes an approved application and receives their name embossed on the card is the only authorized user. Cardholders may initiate transactions on behalf of others in his/her department; however, Cardholders are responsible for purchasing only eligible travel goods and services; obtaining required documentation; and ensuring charges to restricted funds follow the terms and/or conditions of the fund. Cardholders with questions about whether certain expenditures are allowed on sponsored projects or restricted funds must contact their University Research Administrator (URA) or dean’s office. Only eligible business travel and entertainment expenses may be charged; personal purchases are strictly prohibited. All transactions must be supported by a detailed business purpose and complete documentation. Cardholders must ensure all transactions are familiar and reasonable, perform a detailed review or delegate detailed review to a designee, and submit all documentation in Ignite Expense for reconciliation.
The Cardholder must pay the monthly statement balance in full by the due date specified by the Issuing Bank. The University will reimburse employees in a timely manner for approved, allowable transactions upon receipt of complete and proper documentation in Ignite Expense. The Cardholder agrees to use such reimbursement to pay the balance of the Travel Card. The University does not directly pay Travel Card statements for University employees.
