  2. Expense Type – please choose the category that is most relevant to the expense. If none of the types listed is appropriate, then you can choose miscellaneous but should then update the account code the one that is most appropriate.
    1. If you are unsure, please email lawbudget@syr.edu to ask or reference the department account code listing
  3. Only the cardholder has access to reconcile and print their statement. If you want to set up a Transaction Approver please set that person up as a delegate, authorized to submit on your behalf.
