Can I be reimbursed for a flight purchased with my own credit card if a credit is issued by the airline for future use? What if I will not be traveling for the university in the future?

Every traveler (including guests) should be reimbursed for appropriate expenses extended for airfare – except purchases made after the release of the Coronavirus Travel Guidelines and that were not approved through the Updated Travel Process.

Travelers must remember that upon reimbursement for airfare, any credit associated with the reimbursed airfare available in their name is subject to university’s discretion for business purposes (e.g. transfer to another employee).  If you are unable to use airfare credits, contact the Travel Office for eligible options. 

If the credit is used for a personal trip, the value of the credit must be returned to the university.
