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), attend PCI training, and complete an annual compliance certificate form.

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, Bookstore, Food Services, Student Accounts (Bursar Office).

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