 COVID-19 Travel Information

University Travel Restrictions

There is no permitted University Travel during a Health and Safety Level Five.

Michigan Tech travel has been restricted by our own internal policies to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in response to the governor's November 18 emergency order.  When safe travel can resume, it will be limited to only essential travel.


 Individuals traveling or moving for University-related business may be reimbursed for necessary and reasonable expenses incurred. 

Concur is now used for employee travel expense reports, international travel  requests and travel (cash) advance requests. All Faculty and Staff should submit the following through Concur: Travel Expense Reports, Business Meal Reports, International Travel Requests, Travel Advances and purchasing card allocations. Visit the Concur webpage for more information.

International Travel Requests

All international business travel has effectively been cancelled.

International travel includes any travel on University business outside of the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands and Canada.

Moving and House Hunting

Policies, procedures and instructions for new and active employees moving or house hunting.

Cash Advances

A cash advance may be requested for expenses incurred during University travel. Cash advances should not be used for reimbursement of expenses incurred prior to travel. These expenses should be charged to a University Purchasing Card or claimed on a Concur Travel &/or Business Meal Expense Report.

Unused cash advances should be paid back to the University via theNon-Student Payment Portal. Choose the “Travel Repayment” selection and enter all required information (i.e. index, travel start date, and travel destination). The receipt or confirmation email from the payment portal will be needed for upload to Concur to clear the cash advance.
