Students must apply for funding via the online application in InfoReady before traveling to receive funding from the School of Graduate Studies and Research. See your approved application for
the total reimbursable funds from your department and the School of Graduate Studies and Research.
Important: If you are employed by IUP in any capacity
(student worker, graduate assistant, teaching assistant, instructor, etc.), your
travel expense must be reimbursed within 60 days from the last day of your
travel. A reimbursement issued more than 60 days after the end of the travel
will be added to the traveler’s compensation and reported on the traveler’s W-2
as taxable income.
Please deliver your reimbursement paperwork to your department immediately upon your return.
Please note: Students are not reimbursed for food expenses. Funding is provided only for conference registration, hotel, and travel expenses.
Travel expenses are paid up front by the student and reimbursed through regular university procedures. When you are making plans for travel, make sure that you use the most economical means of transportation.
Please read and follow the guidelines below for reimbursement. Failure to do so may result in the university’s inability to provide reimbursement.
If you have questions, please contact your graduate program coordinator, graduate department secretary, or the School of Graduate Studies and Research at firstname.lastname@example.org .
