Each faculty member and student must submit a travel request prior to traveling.
Faculty: Once the travel authorization has been submitted in PeopleSoft you will receive a request for approval (via email). The travel authorization must be approved before travel occurs.
Students: There are two opportunities for students to receive funding for travel. Funding is available through the Dean’s office with the maximum award being $300. Priority will be given to students who have not received a previous travel award from the school; no student will receive more than one award in a fiscal year. The Graduate School also offers funding, ranging up to $500 for domestic travel and up to $800 for international travel. Qualified students may receive up to two travel grants during their tenure in the graduate school. For both of these awards, the department may match funding up to $450.
A request for travel reimbursement can be made after all travel has been completed.
