How to Get a Card

Completion of the Iowa State University Card Application in Workday and attendance at an orientation session are required to obtain a procurement card. Prospective cardholders can initiate their own online applications through "Create Request" in Workday and the job aid is available here.

The card is available to all faculty and staff of Iowa State University with the approval of their respective supervisor and cost center manager. Graduate assistants may be eligible to have a Procurement Card as authorized by their respective supervisor and cost center manager and director of Procurement Services. Casual hourly (XH) employees are not eligible to have a Procurement Card.

Your personal credit history will in no way be affected by the ISU Procurement Card. Monthly statements will be paid directly by electronic funds transfer.

Each new Procurement Card issued will be sent to the Procurement Services department. Cardholders are required to attend an orientation session. Enrollment for procurement card orientation sessions is available in Learn@ISU.
