Clarification to administrators, faculty, and staff regarding the Student Domestic Travel Policy that went into effect July 1, 2013.
For local travel* involving students (individuals and groups) there are three categories to consider:
- If there is no university funding for the trip and no supervision (advisor/faculty member) then no travel authorization needs to be completed. Student Organizations must fill out the Student Organization Travel Request form.
- If there is no university funding for the trip but it is going to be supervised (even if traveling separately), then only a Field Trip Report form must be completed. Student Organizations must fill out the Student Organization Travel Request form instead of the Field Trip Report.
- If there is any university funding for a local trip, then a Travel Authorization form must be completed and moved on for appropriate signatures (see Chart 1 & 2 in policy). Student Organizations will also fill out the Student Organization Travel Request form. This documentation will be attached to your Travel Authorization.
A Travel Authorization form must be completed for any non-local travel.
*Local travel is defined as travel within Henderson, Evansville, Newburgh and New Harmony.
