Travel Expense Report

Complete the form online. Forms filled out by hand cannot be accepted.​ Save the completed form to your hard drive. It will not print until saved. ​Print a hard copy and staple your receipts to it. (Financial Affairs requires original, itemized receipts for expenses and meals. Any restaurant can create an itemized receipt if asked, even if it must be hand written. Example: If you charge a meal to your hotel room or have room service, ask for an itemized receipt that shows what items were ordered. The checkout statement, where your meal is listed as simply “dinner” or “lunch” without specifics, will not work for reimbursement.

Use this online tool if you need to convert your expenses from other currency to the US dollar. Enter the dates of your trip. The web page calculates an average exchange rate for the period of time you traveled. Put the average on the form and attach the web page printout to the expense report as proof of the correct exchange rate.
