Credit Cards

The easiest way to access funds from your organization’s budget is through a RISD credit card.  Both a budget request and credit card sign-out request must be approved by your CSI advisor prior to use for each purchase. Once approved, a card may be signed out from the CSI office from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm Monday through Friday.   The card should only be used to make club or organization purchase for approved expense(s). The student who is approved to sign out the card is the only student that can come in and obtain a card. Students signing out the credit card cannot transfer the card to another student.  The student who checks out the card is responsible for logging transactions into the clubs’ general ledger or checkbook. All receipts created by use of the card must be returned on the next business day between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Students may be responsible for expense(s) if no receipt is provided.

To ensure the security of all student accounts, copying or keeping card information “On-File” is not allowed.  Purchases through vendors where an account is needed are prohibited (amazon, Uber, web-hosting, instacart, etc). See your CSI advisor for assistance with these purchases. Students using any of the CSI credit cards may be asked to show their RISD ID to the vendor.

Failure to comply with this Credit Card Policy will result in termination of use.
