Petty Cash Form Instructions (Requestor)

Petty Cash Process

  1. Requestor completes the petty cash form, attaches corresponding receipts and submits the request for approval.  An email confirmation will be received upon submission.
  2. Approver receives an email notification that there is something to approve, clicks on the link in the email or their eDocs Inbox and clicks on the request.
  3. Approver reviews the request and submits a decision.  If the Approver returns, declines, or approves the request, the Requestor is notified by email of the next required action.
  4. Once the request is approved, the requestor receives an email, visits the Bursar Office and receives their petty cash.
