Picking Up and Returning Petty Cash

Due to COVID-19, our procedures have changed for issuing petty cash. For organizations or departments who need petty cash to make small purchases $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 departmental permission and signatures for your purchase order, then send an email to the following staff to arrange a time for the Comptroller in Business and Finance to sign your purchase order and to arrange a time with the Bursar’s Office to obtain the funds.
  • At the agreed upon time, visit Business and Finance in Richards Hall to obtain the final signature for your purchase order.
  • Visit the Bursar’s Office in University Hall at the agreed upon time to obtain your funds. You will need to knock on our door upon arrival. We will walk out to our lobby to assist you. You may also visit the welcome desk at the entrance of University Hall and let them know the purpose of your visit. They will contact the Bursar’s Office directly so that someone can walk out to the lobby to assist you.
  • After you have made your purchase, you will need to return your receipt and any leftover cash to the Bursar’s Office the following business day. Please email BOTH Marla Smith and Donna Ogle to arrange a time to return these items, and follow the instructions in step 3 upon arrival.
