602.01 Travel Authorizations

Travel at state expense is expected to result in professional improvement for faculty members and should be of benefit to the University. Requests for travel authorization should be submitted on the appropriate forms two weeks prior to the departure date.

To assure protection under the state Worker's Compensation laws, faculty members are required to file a travel request for trips in connection with University duties whether or not they are to be reimbursed.

Faculty members required to travel regularly may receive standing authorizations for travel for a stated period of time during a fiscal year. Specific authorizations are necessary for individuals making only occasional trips and for all out-of-state trips.

602.02 Travel Advance

Travel advances are possible under the current travel regulations. In addition to the requirements listed, all faculty must present a proper Georgia State University photo ID card.
