Graduate, undergraduate student travel process

Travel by employees who participate in the Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) and Undergraduate Student (UGS) programs will be reimbursed only when the following process is used. Participants in these programs are hired on a short-term basis of one year or less. Reimbursement is for the hired individual only. These regulations do not apply to employees who live within a 50-mile radius of the primary work location as indicated in the offer letter or employment agreement. Eligible expenses are paid post-hire only.
