Travel Reimbursement

University travel expenses must not be reimbursed until the trip has been completed.

Departments are strongly encouraged to make reservations and purchase airline tickets and other travel services through the Globetrotter Travel, and to use the University Travel Card for payment.

University business travel arrangements made in this way eliminate the need for the traveler to advance personal funds, since reimbursement for airline tickets, deposits, etc. cannot be made until after the trip has been completed. There are other benefits that apply to business travel when the University travel agents issue airline tickets and make reservations, and when payment is made using the University Travel Card.
