Bursar's Office

Picking Up and Returning Petty Cash

For organizations or departments who need petty cash to make small purchases of $100 or less which cannot be made by check or through ePro, please follow these steps to ensure that you are served as quickly as possible.

  • Obtain all signatures on your Purchase Order form. This includes departmental permission and signature, as well as a signature from the Purchasing Office in Richards Hall. If no one is available to sign in the Purchasing Office, please visit the Office of the Vice President for Business and Finance in Richards Hall for signature. We cannot issue your cash without a signed PO.
  • If possible, please make an appointment on the Bursar's Office Calendly page to obtain your cash so that we may prepare for your visit. Appointments are preferred but not required.
  • After you have made your purchase, you will need to return your receipt and any leftover cash to the Bursar’s Office by 4pm the next business day.
