Description of Service

This service provides all faculty, staff, researchers, and students with support for travel- and expense-related reimbursements for work-related out-of-pocket expenses that qualify for reimbursement from any type of university fund (e.g. operating, research, professional expense, etc.). This includes expenses incurred by individuals outside the university for university business.

In addition to support for general work-related expense reimbursements, this service provides additional support for travel-related expenses, including:

  • Creating expense reports.
  • Providing post-trip claims processing and reimbursement approvals.

Travel expenditures submitted for reimbursement must be in accordance with the university's Travel Expense Guidelines (login required). Hospitality expenditures submitted for reimbursement must be in accordance with the university’s Hospitality Expense Guidelines (login required).
