Internal Service Request (ISR)

An Internal Service Request (ISR) is the payment method used to pay most on-campus departments. Examples of where you would be paying via an ISR include (but are not limited to):
  • Room rental and AV equipment charges from Stamp Event Services, Nyumburu, RecWell or The Clarice
  • Flyer, poster and printing costs through Copy Services
  • UMD Police or Facilities Management services
  • On-campus food vendors such as Chik Fil A, S’barro’s, Taco Bell and Subway as well as Catering or Goodies-to-Go through Dining Services
  • DOTS Shuttle or Charter services

Due to the ease of transferring funds from one on-campus department to another, ISRs are a nearly instantaneous payment method. While the process can be completed on the same business day, avoid waiting until the last minute to submit the request to allow for any unanticipated issues.

While some university departments will allow groups to provide their KFS account number in lieu of an ISR, student groups are prohibited from doing so. All on-campus payments must be pre-approved by SORC through the ISR process.

Some departments will not accept an ISR and must be paid via different methods. These departments include (but are not limited to):

  • McDonalds
  • Moby Dick
  • Maryland Food Cooperative
  • Panda Express
  • Motor Pool
  • Riggs Alumni Center.

Remember to ALWAYS check with the department/office that you are paying prior to submitting an ISR request to ensure that they accept this as a payment method.
