Cash Advances

Cash advances are available to employees who are CMU Business Credit Card holders for travel and entertainment-related expenses and can be obtained at the Cashiers Office in OneCentral, Bovee University Center.

Obtaining Advances

Travel advances may be obtained by presenting the CMU Business Credit Card to the Cashier's Office staff in Bovee University Center, Room 119. Office hours are 9:00am-5:00pm on Mondays and 8:00am-5:00pm Tuesday through Friday, phone 774-3618.

  • Cash advances are limited to $200 per trip.
  • Departments with exceptions to the cash advance limit: Requests that exceed $2500 require three (3) working-days notice in the Cashier's office to assure cash availability.
  • Expenses paid for with a cash advance must be documented on the CMU Business Card Reconciliation Form. If the net of expenses vs. cash advance results in the employee owing CMU, that amount will be payroll deducted.
