Merchant Category Codes (MCCs) determine whether a purchase will be allowed from specific companies or categories of businesses, assuming account limits and other controls do not intervene. Each code can be open or closed on a card by card basis. Charges from a merchant whose MCC code is closed will be declined at the point of sale. Special needs or variances should be discussed with the Program Administrator.
