Please take not that the email for your UShop profile is the preferred email in your CIS profile. This will also be your default Amazon account email and it cannot be edited once you setup your account.

Checkout Process
These videos go over how to check your cart out in the UShop system. Please watch all four videos and review the department handouts below before moving onto the next training block.

For department shopping carts please label them in the following format: YYYYMMDD-LAST NAME OF P.I.-LAST 5 DIGITS OF ACTIVITY/PROJECT.

Example: If you were purchasing something on January 1, 2021 for Dr. Bloggs’ project 12345678 (eight digit number), you would label that cart as 20210101-BLOGGS-45678. If you were using Dr. Bloggs’ activity 12345 (five digit number) you would label the cart as 20210101-BLOGGS-12345. If you are using similar projects or activities on more than one purchase on the same day please add a “-” and then 1, 2, 3, etc. after the account on each subsequent cart.

Shopping carts that do not label their carts properly will be returned to the shopper for inclusion or correction before purchase approval will be given.


The shipping address for the MSE Administration Office is:

Materials Science & Engineering
122 S. Central Campus Drive, Room 304
Salt Lake City, Utah 84112.

Please check the shipping address at checkout since your default information could list another address. If the shipping address is different within the system you will need to manually change the address per instructions within the video. Shopping carts that do not list the proper shipping address will be returned to the shopper for correction before purchase approval will be given.


Please take note of the A/U field on the chartfield. If you are using a project (eight digit number) please leave the A/U field blank. Disregard the “empty field” warning when using a project for your shopping cart. However, if you are using an activity (five digit number) you will need to enter “1” into the A/U field before submitting your cart. Please take note of this policy, especially if you use both projects and activities.


It is important that all shopping carts include information that others in the approval process can access. Most activities and projects require a justification of the purchase, which can be met through the comment feature within the UShop system. Each shopping cart order must include an attached comment of justification. Included in the comment must be (1) what the purchase will be used for, (2) who will be using the item(s) that are being purchased and (3) where the items will be used or stored, which includes the room number and building name.

Example: If you are purchasing a new furnace that will be used by John Doe in Dr. Bloggs’ Lab in the MCE Building for the furnace research project. Your note should read something to the affect of … “The new XLRT-2001 furnace will be used by John Doe for the furnace research project in Dr. Bloggs’ Lab in 1234 MCE.” Please be concise and specific. Carts that do not include this information will be returned to the shopper for inclusion or clarification before purchase approval will be given.
