The University of Scranton Travel Expense Report
General University Policy
The University will reimburse all reasonable and necessary travel expenses incurred while representing the University. It is expected that faculty/staff will exercise prudent judgment when incurring expenditures consistent with the flexibility afforded by policies and guidelines. These guidelines apply to the reimbursement from all University funds, irrespective of source. Though travel paid from grants and contracts typically follows the overall University policy, some exceptions do exist, one area being foreign travel. The granting agency's documentation provides the guidelines for travel expenses charged to a grant or contract. University departmental budgets must be used for any excess reimbursement above what is allowed on the grant or contract.

Expenditure Limits and Constraints
• • • First class air travel is not reimbursable. The Mileage allowance for business use of a personal automobile is $.55 per mile. (January 2009) Meals, including incidentals, may be reimbursed up to the per diem rates with no justification of the cost. The General Services Administration (GSA) establishes per diem rates for destinations within the Continental United States (CONUS). Per Diems should not be requested when meals are included in registration fees or paid for by others. For daily expenditures that exceed Per Diem rates, receipts must be attached. If the cost of any meal includes guests, those persons must be identified by name, title, and organization and the business purpose of the meal indicated. This information must be indicated on the receipt or on the Explanation of Expenses on the Travel Expense Report.


Expenditures Not Reimbursable
• • • • • Personal entertainment, valet services, and airline travel club fees, are not reimbursable. The traveler will not be reimbursed for costs incurred by failure to cancel transportation, hotel reservations, conferences, registrations, or other travel-related activities. The traveler should not accept insurance offered by auto rental agencies as this expense is not reimbursable. Automobile upgrades are not reimbursable. Any purchase of alcoholic beverages must be separately identified and removed from all reimbursement

Receipts Required
• Balance Due University. When a balance is due to The University, a deposit must be made in Accounts Receivable prior to submitting the Travel Expense Report to Accounts Payable. A copy of the receipt issued must be attached to the back of the Travel Expense Report. Airfare/Rail Ticket Stub (the original passenger boarding pass which indicated the traveler's name, destination, dates of travel, and cost) should be attached. Original dated receipts must be provided for lodging, vehicle rental, registration fees, and meal reimbursement requests. Any other individual expense exceeding $10 per day will not be reimbursed without a dated receipt. Original dated receipts that are not letter size must be taped to a white sheet of paper (8½ x 11). Several dated receipts may be taped to each sheet of paper (one side only). This process will significantly improve the review of dated receipts. Please do not overlap dated receipts on the paper. A copy of your conference itinerary must be attached.
