All tickets are non-refundable to insure that we are getting the lowest fare possible. It is important that you get your approvals as soon as possible so that you don’t lose the airfare that has been quoted by the agency. 3. The individual who is traveling can not approve his/her travel. The Dean/Department Head or Faculty Enhancement Administrator and the VicePresident or President (when required) must always approve the travel documentation.

Hotel room and tax charges, reasonable phone charges and internet hook up may be charged to the card. All other expenses, including but not limited to, room service, mini-bar service, movies, spas, etc. must be billed and paid separately by the traveler.
