INDIVIDUAL TRAVEL FUNDING
All University of Utah Students currently enrolled in Academic programs are eligible for travel funding through ASUU. A student can request up to 100% of their available travel costs be covered by ASUU, up to $600 per fiscal year per student. Students may make a travel request as many times as they wish. There is a $12 audit fee for out of state travel, $8 audit fee for in-state travel, that is subtracted from your total reimbursement. The total amount funded per student may not exceed $600 per fiscal year (July 1st – June 30th).
Eligible travel expenses include flights, ground transportation ( lyft, uber, rail, taxi), lodging (hotel, Airbnb), conference registration, and poster printing.
Per University Policy, the following additional guidelines must be adhered to:
- Reasonable and necessary lodging costs (room rental and related taxes), will be reimbursed. Conference lodging will be reimbursed at the lowest available single occupancy room rate. Original itemized receipts are required for reimbursement of these costs. Credit card vouchers are not acceptable.
- Lodging costs in excess of a single room rate will not be reimbursed except when the additional occupant is an authorized university traveler.
- When university travelers, on official travel status, obtain non-conventional lodging (i.e., friends, relatives, etc.), they will be reimbursed at the daily rate authorized in the Schedule of Allowable Travel Rates. Token payments or other forms of compensation will not be reimbursed.
