SOU Business Travel

The purpose of the SOU travel procedures are to provide travelers with guidance and set forth requirements for the conduct of all official university travel. The university reimburses only those travel expenses reported by faculty, staff, and other authorized travelers which are incurred for the performance of authorized university business activities.  Official university business activities typically fall into the following categories:

  1. Carry out official business (i.e. attending meetings, conferences, etc.)
  2. Further training and professional development through attendance at off-campus conferences, conventions or training sessions.
  3. To provide for recruitment of faculty, staff, and students. 

Travel Guidelines

Guidelines for travel reimbursement include authorization of travel procedures, how to be reimbursed for transportation, meals, lodging and other expenses associated with travel, and the methods of payment for travel.
