University Credit Card Information

Procurement is a daily occurrence at Colorado School of Mines. The CSM corporate credit card, known as the Procurement Card or P-Card, is one of the convenient ways that we have to help you make the purchases that help you do your job.

The School has a contract with US Bank for Procurement Cards which serves as the preferred method for all purchases $4,500 or less. 

There are many benefits to using the P-Card over any other methods of purchasing at Mines:

  • There is less paperwork involved in P-Card
  • Allocations of transactions are simple
  • It is the preferred method of purchasing items under $4,500

 If you have any questions, concerns, or input please do not hesitate to contact the Procurement Card Administrator:
