How to Get a Card

For campus organization users, please see the Student Procurement Card Program page.

Cardholders are required to complete the Iowa State University P-Card program application and attend an orientation session to obtain a P-Card.

Applicants should submit the P-Card application through the Create Request task in Workday (Card Applications in Workday).

  • Navigate to the task by searching Create Request from the Workday Landing Page.
  • Search ‘card’ in the Request Type box, press enter, and select Card Application –Procurement Card (P-Card).

The P-Card is available to all Iowa State University faculty, staff and graduate assistants with the approval of cardholder’s manager and the department’s cost center manager.

Each new P-Card ordered will be sent directly to Procurement Services, to be distributed to the cardholder after attendance at cardholder orientation. Cardholders will be provided with specific information needed to activate their P-Card during cardholder orientation. Cardholders may enroll in Procurement Card Orientation sessions through Learn@ISU.

The cardholder’s personal credit history is not affected by the P-Card.
