All domestic and international travel must be approved prior to booking a trip. Please use a Concur Request for all domestic and international travel requests. You will need to enter your Request ID to finalize your international reservation.

Planning an international trip in the next six-twelve months? 

  • Check passport and other document requirements now. Many travelers are experiencing significant passport delays. 
  • For information on passport processing, including expedited services, see the Department of State website, and the CIBT links on our International Travel page.

Use the Concur Travel & Expense System (Concur) to book domestic and international travel and to process expense reports. Use the University's travel management company, Christopherson Business Travel (CBT), to book group travel; you can also use CBT for individual domestic and international bookings if desired. 

You may only purchase your own flights if the flight is not available on Concur or through the travel agent, or if the flights provide significant savings. 

  • Purchasing airfare on a personal credit card is only allowed provided you have obtained a comparison quote of the airfare through Concur for domestic travel or through CBT for international travel prior to your trip. 
  • The comparison quote must be for the exact same dates and timeframe as your quote for the internet airfare. If the total cost of the external site fare (including fees) is less than or equal to the Concur/CBT fare, you are allowed to purchase using a personal credit card. The comparison quote must be obtained prior to the actual purchase and must be retained to be submitted with your reimbursement report.  See the full policy for more information
