Most travel funds are awarded on a reimbursable basis only. Only airfare can be paid in advance by the university, and only when using one of
MTSU's listed travel agencies. *Domestic travel authorizations must be turned in 30
days in advance to the travel office, and international authorizations must be turned
in 60 days in advance. Cash advances are not available to students, and department
purchasing cards cannot be used for travel expenses. When you return, you must fill
out a travel expense claim form that has all original receipts attached. Sign and
deliver it to Julie Gannon, Ingram 101. She will obtain the remaining necessary signatures.
A check will be sent to you. Or, if you have arranged for direct deposit, your reimbursement
can be deposited that way if you prefer.
If you need help with these forms, please contact Julie at 494-7848, and she will
be glad to assist you.
