Internal Service Request



An Internal Service Request (ISR) is the payment method used by registered student organizations to pay most on-campus departments.

Examples of where you would be paying via an ISR include (but are not limited to):

  • Room Rentals and Equipment Charges: Stamp Event Services, Nyumburu
  • Flyer, Posters, or Printing Costs: Copy Services 
  • On-Campus Catering: On-campus food vendors such as Chick Fil A, Sbarro’s, Taco Bell, and Subway as well as Catering or Goodies-to-Go through Dining Services
  • UMD Police or Facilities Management services

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

  • Riggs Alumni Center
  • McDonald's
  • Moby Dick
  • Saladworks
  • Panda Express

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

Due to the ease of transferring funds from one on-campus department to another, ISRs are a nearly instantaneous payment method. Click here to see the video on how to fill out an ISR form.

  1. ISR requests must be submitted at least 5 days in advance

    * 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.

  2. 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
