Dickinson College has established a Purchasing Card Program to provide expanded convenience and controls for low dollar purchases, and to establish a payment methodology that will support the future purchasing directions of internal and external transactions. The Purchasing Card, an institutional credit card, is designed to give controlled buying power directly to the Departments/Divisions and to eliminate many small-dollar purchase orders and checks. 

JP Morgan’s MasterCard is the provider of the Dickinson College Purchasing Card. MasterCard is readily accepted by most vendors and is a convenient purchase and payment tool for low dollar purchases. 
Purchasing cards differ from typical credit cards in that they allow for Cardholder review, coding of transactions, and reporting online in MasterCard’s Smart Data OnLine software.
