Cornell University

Accepting Credit Cards

Credit cards are the University preferred method of payment. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit cards in the Office of Financial Operations and Budget Planning, at the Conference Center and online.

All non-class credit card information must be given to our office to process. It is important that individual departments handle the information prudently by ensuring that credit card numbers are not sent via email, and that all credit card information is hand delivered to Dianna Dean-Tucker, 393 Ives Hall East, immediately upon receipt to be stored securely until the transaction is processed.

Individuals who have access to credit card numbers are required by the  University to complete the PCI Compliance Training online at CU learn each year.

The information that is necessary to process a transaction is:

  • Card Holder's address and phone number
  • Credit card number, expiration date, and security code number
  • Description of transaction
  • Department account number with object code to deposit money

For questions relating to the receipt of credit cards, please contact Dianna Dean-Tucker at 607-255-4564 or via email at dd86@cornell.edu.  You may also refer to the University Policy: Policy #3.17, Accepting Credit Cards to Conduct University Business.
