OSU employees and students need to submit pre-trip requests for their OSU sponsored domestic and international travel through Concur, except for in-state travel.  The International Travel Registry (housed in Global Opportunities) should still be used for ALL international travel.  This will ensure OSU students and employees are properly supported in case of emergency while traveling abroad.  Work is currently underway aimed at reducing the complexity around pre-trip registration processes for International Travel, but the International Travel Registry remains a critical component.


Generally, lodging will be reimbursed only up to the per diem amount (refer to the Business Affairs travel page for current per diem rates).  Students, please discuss further with your PI/Advisor before traveling.  In some situations, they may have certain restrictions that must be followed.


For almost all in-State ground travel all faculty, staff, and students should utilize motorpool.

For those very rare instances a student or faculty member is given permission to utilize their own vehicle, rather than motorpool, please use this Mileage Log

Prior to traveling by personal car, make sure you (a) ask for permission from your PI or Program Director, (b) write a statement explaining why personal transportation is more cost effective; and (c) provide back up documentation supporting this statement.

* Filling the driver authorization form is mandatory, to be completed prior to reserving your ride and renewed annually.  The form should be scanned and emailed to Catherine Mullins ([email protected]), as the authorizing signer.

*Students are required to use Motor Vehicles for ground travel around Oregon to do work. Using a personal vehicle should be used only a last resort and requires pre-approval from advisor.


Personal Reimbursements will be handled on Concur.  If you haven't already done so, complete your profile information within Concur, scan a copy of your receipts, making sure to include each items business purpose, and have your PI's index handy before starting your request.
