The Department of Finance and Budget is committed to keeping University financial operations efficient, transparent and flexible and thus has many avenues of purchasing power for campus units. Payment services, such as P-Cards, Prepaid cards, Travel and Expense Cards and ePurchasing are preferable for payment purposes, but in certain circumstances, a cash advance can be issued.

Cash Advances are sometimes necessary for efficiency or because they are the only means acceptable to the payment requirements of the service rendered. Examples include but are not limited to: group field trips, hosting foreign visitors, or purchasing food and materials for large group functions.

The Cash Management Team oversees the implementation of cash advances. For complete instructions on how to obtain a cash advance, see the University Policy and Procedure below. Remember to keep all receipts and documentation needed to reconcile your cash advance.
