In response to limited campus access during the COVID-19 pandemic, in early 2021 the Card Services team began redirecting all new, renewed, or reissued Purchasing Cards (PCards) and Travel Cards (TCards) to a secure central delivery site. Cardholders submitted a support request or updated the Credit Card Profiles Change Request tool with an alternate address to have their cards forwarded to their location.

As of September 1, all new, renewed, or reissued PCards and TCards will now be delivered to the cardholder's Stanford business address since many cardholders have returned to working onsite on a Stanford campus. Cards that are mailed to an alternate address (such as an employee’s home) can be difficult to track, which increases risk to the university.

Cardholders: Review and update your Stanford business address

To ensure delivery to the correct address, cardholders should use the Credit Card Profiles Change Request tool to review their business address for card delivery and update it if necessary. Be sure to provide your full mailing address, including any building or suite numbers, etc.

If you work remotely

PCards and TCards for remote employees will be delivered to their Stanford business address. Cardholders should coordinate with their departments to have their cards sent to their location.

Employees may request a one-time card delivery to their alternate address through the Credit Card Profiles Change Request tool. Please submit this request two months before the card’s expiration date; the alternate address request applies only to that card delivery date and is not retained in the system. After that card is delivered, the address will default back to the Stanford business address.
