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 (NEW 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 – NEW Procurement (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 the applicant.  P-Card transactions will be declined until Procurement Card Orientation is completed. Enrollment in Procurement Card Orientation sessions is available through Learn@ISU.

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