Take Note...


Getting a Purchasing Card, commonly referred to as a PCard, at Elizabethtown College involves approval, training and other important measures. Here, we discuss the process.

Elizabethtown College policies, as well as good business practices, must be followed in using the PCard.

  • The PCard functions as an alternative to a check, the same approval limits apply to both.
  • Transactions cannot be split to circumvent the $999 limit.
  • Card limits will NOT be increased.
  • Cards cannot be shared.
  • Allocation and statement submission is required monthly.
  • PCard training is required for new card users.
  • PCards will be deactivated for non-compliance.

NOTE:  PCards are never to be used in the College Store
