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 (Job Aid).

  • 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. Hourly employees are not eligible to have a P-Card.

Each new P-Card ordered will be sent directly to the cardholder at the address requested on the card application. Cardholders will be provided with specific information needed to activate their corporate card during cardholder orientation. Cardholders may enroll in Procurement Card Orientation sessions through Learn@ISU.

The cardholder’s personal credit history will in no way be affected by the ISU P-Card.
