Non-travel expense reimbursement request form

  • Reimbursements should not be the usual way that a department obtains goods. Reimbursement of goods is limited to $5,000 and is further limited to commodities not covered by university price agreements. For questions about out-of-pocket expenses, or to make a purchase via CU Marketplace or with a university procurement card, contact the designated Financial Services Team member for your department. A personal payment for services, cash awards, gift cards or study subject payments cannot be reimbursed.

Concur travel request
All professional domestic and international travel must be approved prior to booking a trip using Concur Request. Concur Request replaces the hardcopy professional travel form and is used as a means for reporting your plan for covering your classes and other professional obligations in your absence, therefore a Concur Request must be submitted for all professional travel, regardless of whether the trip is being funded by CU or an outside entity.
