  1. Student will create and submit a request in Concur with all anticipated expenses.
  2. Student will receive an email with a link to the DBC training and application. (If the student does not need a declining balance card, they should ignore the email.)
  3. The student is required to take the training in HuskyCT and pass with a score of 85% or better.
  4. Once the training is completed, the student will receive a certificate of completion, which they should attach in the DBC application.
  5. Once this is submitted the student will receive the card in 7-10 business days.
