Before planned travel
Carefully read the Faculty/Staff Travel Policy Guidelines below.
Let your Department Chair or Department Supervisor know when you are planning to travel and why. Faculty members are only allowed to miss three days of teaching per semester as an excused absence for faculty presentation and/or conference attendance.
For domestic or foreign travel, complete a Travel Authorization Form and have your Chair/Department Supervisor sign it and submit to the Office of Academic Affairs.
You must be a registered vendor with CUNYFirst to receive any travel reimbursement.
Check with OAA to discuss the details of your trip if you have not received a pre-travel approval e-mail, as to whether the trip has been approved and/or any next steps required.
Within three weeks after planned travel:
All receipts must be submitted to OAA, along with an Out-of-Town Travel Expense Voucher Form. Please note: If you are traveling in June, all requests for reimbursement must be submitted immediately upon your return as the end of the fiscal year is June 30.
Currently, there is an Executive Order banning travel to North Carolina and Mississippi. Please contact the Office of Academic Affairs with any questions regarding travel to these states.
If your trip is canceled for any reason, please notify the Office of Academic Affairs as soon as possible.
