UCAR Travel Policies

T-Card Info

All UCAR staff travelers are eligible for the corporate billed JP Morgan Visa UCAR Travel Credit Card (T-Card). With this credit card, you can directly charge to UCAR all your business travel expenses allowable under UCAR policy. These cards significantly reduce the need for cash advances and reimbursements, dramatically streamline administrative overhead, and have no impact on your individual credit rating. These cards also help eliminate out of pocket expenses and integrate seamlessly with expense reporting in Concur.

To request a UCAR T-Card:

1)     Complete the online T-Card application form.

2)     Complete the online (Skillsoft) T-card training module. 

  • Training can be found at SkillPort (https://ucar.skillport.com/). Please contact Toni Wallace at twallace@ucar.edu to obtain your login information.
  • Login to Skillport and go the UCAR Travel Card (Training) and click on Launch. This will take you directly to the training course.
  • If the course does not come up on your home screen go to the top of the page and type Travel Card in the search field, it then will come up under custom. Then click on launch.

You will not receive the card until you have completed the T-card training Module.  Once you have completed your training, you will receive your T-Card within 15 business days. Be sure to activate it within 60 days and adhere to all UCAR policies and travel regulations.

After completion of the training, you may use the card for any travel initiated through the Concur Travel & Expense system. If you have any questions please call or email me.
