Credit Cards & Amazon
Now that you know what you’re working with there are a few ways to proceed. If you’ve attended Financial Training at some point in the year (needs to be repeated each academic year), you are able to check out a credit card from the OSA. Credit cards can be used for both in-person and online organization expenses. If your supplies can be acquired from Amazon, we will place an order for you. To order, please use our Amazon Order Form.
A check can be used to pay an invoice or outside talent. To request a check, student organization by filling out a Check Request Form and having it approved by an OSA staff member. Contracts are often paid using checks that are funded by your student organization as well. Contracts can be tricky so make sure you’re following the proper contract procedures.
