American Express Corporate Card
The University offers an American Express Card to all employees if the employee is recommended by their Department Head. Please submit the completed Application for the American Express Corporate Card to the Travel Office.
The employee is solely responsible for the use of the card and the card is to be used for University business only.

Upon termination of employment with the University, or upon request, the card must be returned to the Travel Office located in Hoggard Hall Room 151.
