Corporate Cards

Office of the Controller


Welcome to the Corporate Card webpage for Metropolitan State University of Denver.

The Corporate Card is a MasterCard, issued to a specific individual or department, through Wells Fargo. The card is used by MSU Denver employees to purchase goods and services for University use.  The authorized cardholder is able to purchase directly on behalf of MSU Denver, thereby allowing tax-exempt use. This Corporate card replaces the Procurement card, the Event card, and the Travel card. These Corporate cards are used for all purchases on behalf of MSU Denver. Please consult the handbook and trainings below before getting started:
