PRIME is the University’s new financial system as of July 1, 2014. Processes and procedures for conducting financial transactions are different for students, faculty and staff across the University.

A Few Things to Keep in Mind:

  • Financial transactions are paperless (except for check deposits)!
  • All receipts are required and must be itemized. Receipts for credit card purchases and reimbursements must be submitted electronically.
  • “Concur” is the University’s new tool for managing University-issued credit cards, registering travel requests, and requesting reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses.
  • Students requesting reimbursement must submit their own requests online through Concur; neither other students nor staff can submit requests for them.
  • Student Treasurers/Cardholders: Your Expense Approver should be the staff member who supervises your group and your card.
  • Student Members of Groups Seeking Reimbursement: Your Expense Approver should be the Treasurer of your group. Please check the Group Directory if you’re unsure who your group’s Treasurer is.
If You Have Questions:

  • Attend a training session for student leaders (listed on the “Introduction to Prime” flyer below).
  • Call the Financial Service Center at 258-3080 or visit them on the 7th floor of New South during business hours.
  • If you are with a student organization advised through the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students (ODUS), visit the ODUS office at 313 West College during business hours.
