Payment Methods

For guidance on selecting between using P-card, PantherExpress System, and the University Travel Card, please review this payment methods comparison table (Excel) or contact Customer Service. Please pay attention to any qualifiers, such as "in travel status."

PantherExpress System

A PantherExpress System Purchase Order is the preferred method for purchasing most goods and services (excepting travel) and provides the best contractual terms and conditions to protect your department. It also helps to simplify accounting and purchase record-keeping and feeds data to the University Oracle systems used for budgeting. 


As a gesture of appreciation, the University may pay honoraria to certain individuals such as members of Boards of Visitors, guest speakers, judges, panel members, peer/program reviewers, or symposium participants. 


The P-card (purchasing card) is a supplemental purchase method for certain types of low-value, low-risk, or emergency purchases.
