Payment is made on a reimbursement basis. All paperwork must be turned into the IFD office via email or intra-campus mail within ten (10) business days after travel or approved professional activity is complete. It will then be sent to the Accounts Payable Office for reimbursement.
Requesting Funds for Non-Travel Activities
For professional activities that do not include travel expenses, such as tuition for a certificate program, complete the Direct Payment Request Form and submit to IFD for approval signature and processing. Include a receipt for the costs of the activity.
Requesting Funds for Travel-based Activities
For professional activities that do include travel, such as conferences, complete the Travel Reimbursement Form and attach original receipts for your expenses. You may also review the University Travel Policy for details on what qualifies as a reimbursable travel expense.
Requesting A Travel Advance
If advance funds are needed for travel, a travel advance may be requested. Complete the Travel Event Advance Request Form and submit to the IFD office at least 10 days prior to your travel dates. If requesting an advance for per diem, please provide the conference and flight schedule. A reconciliation report must be completed for all travel advances and original receipts must be provided. A Travel/Event Advance Reconciliation Report along with all original itemized receipts for the advance expenditures must be turned in within 21 days of the check date.
