International Travel Reimbursements
Upon return from your travel, please submit the following original receipts to your department travel planner as soon as possible:
- Airline receipts and itinerary
- Rental Car receipts
- Gasoline receipts
- Bus, Taxi, Train receipts
- Lodging receipts
- Registration receipts (if paid by the traveler)
Meals are reimbursed based on the established per diem. Meals and lodging are not reimbursed without an overnight stay. Beginning 5/5/2014, the University will reimburse 75% of the total meal rate regardless of the departure or arrival time for the first and last day of travel.
Your department travel planner should create the appropriate travel reimbursement document in PeopleSoft for your review and certification. An electronic document will be routed to Accounts Payable for approval. The supporting documents should be sent to the Accounts Payable Travel section for review. Corrections and/or adjustments to your travel may delay final approval.
