Department Charge Accounts

The Campus Billing and DartCard Office can provide Department Charge card/s and/or Meal Plans meals for food purchases on-campus.

In order to set up a Department Charge account, a GL Chart String number is required. Any transactions occurring on the Department Charge account accumulate during the month, and a monthly balance is journaled for billing to the provided GL Chart String number. Multiple cards can be assigned to the same Department Charge account. Also, multiple accounts can be created for different GL Chart Strings as needed. The requestor will be responsible for the account and the use of the account.

Meal Plans Purchased for Department Account Use

The named Department account holder contacts may request to have meals applied to the department charge account, billable to the account chart string. The department meals are available in blocks of 10 by meal period. The cost rate is available upon request. The meals work at '53 Commons only.
