Making Ithaca College Purchases

Please note: Any merchandise (apparel, bags, writing utensils, mugs, etc.) being ordered that bears any of Ithaca College's trademarked terms must go through the college's licensing program and be produced by a vendor that is approved by Strategic Marketing Affiliates (SMA), known as an official licensee.  For more information about Ithaca College's licensing program, please visit the College's licensing website.

When ordering goods or services, please keep the following in mind:

  • Non-travel purchases up to $1,000.00 – EZpay invoice.
  • Non-travel related purchases up to $2,000.00 – Purchasing Card up to $2000.00 per transaction. If using the Purchasing Card is not an option, enter a requisition for a purchase order through iProcurement.
  • Purchases over $2,000.00 – A requisition for a purchase order must be created in Parnassus using iProcurement.  A signed purchase order is required before goods or services may be ordered or shipped.
  • Purchases over $10,000.00 – Must be competitively bid unless a “sole source justification form” is presented by a College department and approved.

Travel Card
All departmental travel related purchases should be made with a Travel Card.  Visit the Travel Services web page for additional information.  Do not use a Travel Card for non-travel related purchases (see the A/P website).

Purchasing Card
Use the Purchasing Card for non-travel and non-capital departmental purchases.  Visit the Accounts Payable web page for more information.

When the Purchasing Card cannot be used, please use EZpay for non-travel and non-capital departmental purchases up to $1,000.  To schedule training, contact Julia Dillard, Financials Services Training & Documentation Specialist, at (607) 274-3044 or e-mail
