Obtain a P-Card

Cards will be issued to employees designated by their supervisor, dean, director or department head. The card will be issued in the name of that designated employee.

Step by Step

  1. Apply for a P-Card

    1. Complete the Corporate Purchasing Card Agreement.
    2. The applicant and reviewer must successfully complete the P-Card Training in Canvas required annually on a calendar-year basis at the direction of the program administrator.
    3. Send the completed agreement form to Corporate Card Services for processing.

    It takes approximately 7 to 14 calendar days to receive a new or replacement card. The card will be mailed to the cardholder’s departmental Box number. The cardholder must activate the card by calling the number on the back upon receiving the card. The activation process requires you to provide the 16 digits of your card number and your verification code, which is 236 followed by your six digit date of birth (for example, a person born on December 3, 1985 will enter 236120385).

  2. Request Multiple Cards

    Employees may apply for additional cards if they have access to multiple funding sources. Cards issued in the name of a designated employee are intended for use by that employee only.

  3. Make a Change to Your Card (if applicable)

    The cardholder’s reviewer must request changes to existing cards by contacting the corporate card administration team at corpcard@vcu.edu.
