These standards govern all merchants and organizations that collect, process, store, or transmit credit card information. To learn more about PCI DSS, visit their website.

The University is committed to protecting the privacy of payment card information (cardholder information) it processes to comply with the PCI DSS by establishing a policy and a procedure to standardize the process for handling payment card information from the time of payment authorization to completion and ensure that the appropriate controls are in place to safeguard this information against any data breach.
