Welcome to the Travel Office.  Our goal is to provide you with timely and efficient service with professionalism and courtesy.  You will find travel related forms and helpful information below.

TRAVEL PROCESS

First, complete a written Travel Requisition Form.

After completing the written Travel Requisition, go into SciQuest (directions below) and fill out the Travel Request Form.  It acts as information for your supervisor so they can approve your Travel Requisition via SciQuest.

After submitting the Travel Request Form in SciQuest, you will be given an 8-digit number which is now your TR number.  Go back into the Travel Request in SciQuest and use the "comment" tab to request your supervisor's approval. Simply type "for your review and approval" in the box and send to your supervisor using the "add comment" button. Tell your Admin to send the packet straight to the Travel Office. The only person who has to physically sign the form is the traveler and all other approvals are obtained via SciQuest.
