Gift Card Procedure

Please review our GIFT CARD PURCHASING PROCEDURE for complete information on the gift card purchasing process and reimbursement. 

Gift cards/gift certificates (referred to as gift cards) may be purchased using CSUSM Corporation funds for recognition of students, faculty, staff, or incentives for individuals who participate or volunteer in events or activities in support of CSUSM or CSUSM Corporation  programs.

Use of gift cards should be infrequent. Only one gift card can be awarded to a recipient per event/activity and the dollar value of individual gift cards cannot exceed $50 unless approved by the CSUSM Corporation Executive Director. 

Departments should make an attempt to purchase gift cards from CSUSM Corporation partners (ex. Follett and Sodexo). Visit Commercial Services for a complete list of partners.
