PAYMENT CARD ACCEPTANCE

OVERVIEW:
DePaul accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express debit, credit and prepaid cards for goods and services provided by the university.

Departments accepting these types of payment cards have additional responsibilities including minimizing payment card fees, developing business processes and controls to lower the risk of theft and fraud while maximizing data security, and complying with other relevant university policies and payment card industry requirements.
