P-card Procedures & Training

Need in-person training? Join the Card Administrator for a weekly p-card workshop from 9:00 - 10:00 am in Northrup Hall 303. This is an informal opportunity to come and go as needed to get answers to any p-card related questions. If you require help in PaymentNet and don't have a laptop, we will have one available for use in the room. Contact Diana Garcia with any questions about the workshops - x8258 or dgarcia3 [at] trinity.edu.
