Credit Card Acceptance (PCI Compliance)

University Guidelines

Credit Card Acceptance - Departments accepting credit cards for payment must comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI) and complete PCI training course in Blackboard.

PCI regulations apply wherever credit card transactions occur: in person, by telephone, or electronic (online). The areas of YSU that handle card holder information must enforce compliance through business unit practices. The locations identified on campus conducting electronic credit card transactions: Athletic Ticket Office, Campus Recreation, IT Customer Service, Kilcawley Center, Parking Services, Printing Services, University Bursar, WYSU and Youngstown Historical Center.

YSU requires electronic transactions conducted on-site to be segmented away from other campus systems. Web-based transactions must be encrypted.
