PCI Data Security Standards Self-Assessment Questionnaires (SAQ’s)


Accepting credit cards at the University of Tennessee as a payment option requires that the university comply with the security standards established by the payment card industry. 


The completion of an annual self-assessment questionnaire is part of this mandatory compliance, and any university department that stores, processes, or transmits cardholder data must comply with the Payment Card Data Security Standards and complete the questionnaire. 


This questionnaire will be distributed to the Chief Business Officers throughout the university system beginning mid-August, and should be completed by mid-September. 


For more information, including specific questionnaires and the process itself, contact Tim Mapes at (865) 974-2302.
