Credit Card Processing and PCI Compliance

In order to reduce risks associated with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), any department or organization at the University of Tennessee or  wishing to start credit card processing must follow UT policy FI0311 – Credit Card Processing. On this site you will find a collection of documents and information that will help you in getting started with accepting credit cards as well maintaining PCI compliance once you start accepting them.


Getting Started

Prospective merchants must complete a point of sale/internet sales approval form, a credit card processing policy, a Self Assessment Questionnaire, and PCI Training prior to accepting credit card payments. You should always contact the Treasurer’s Office prior to engaging vendors about credit card processing solutions your department might be interested in.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact:
