Travelers on university business typically pay for some of the expenses out of their own pocket and seek reimbursement after the trip is over.
It’s a good idea to keep detailed records of what you spend money on and obtain a receipt whenever possible.
Within 45 days after returning home, you must file an expense report to document the business purpose of the trip and the full amount of the cost. The expense report often includes a request for reimbursement.
The current reimbursement process for most campus travelers is supported by Campus Shared Services (CSS). Check out the Reimbursement Process Summary (PDF) to get an overview of the steps included in reporting your expenses. The Documentation and Receipts page will give you more information about what documentation you’ll need to submit.
The learning resource linked below describes how to submit your trip details to CSS.
Keep in mind that if you don’t receive your reimbursement funds within 10 business days, it’s time to follow-up. Employees can track the status of a reimbursement request directly in the system.
