To submit a travel expense reimbursement form.

Step One:

Download the Business Expense Reimbursement Form

For Part I: Payee Information

Step Two:

Complete the staff name, employee ID #, mailing address, purpose of trip, and location. Fill in the beginning and ending date of the trip, SIgn and date your expense report.

For Part II: Record of Expenses

Step Three:

Fill in the individual dates of the trip in the space above the days of the week. Enter your travel location.

Step Four:

Complete the daily expense items. Please note that meal receipts must include the date, time, names of all persons involved in the purchase. Properly documented receipts provide evidence that allows the University to utilize a reimbursement plan not taxable to the employee under IRS regulations. The electronic copy of the form will automatically total both rows and columns. They should total to the same number. The totals will calculate as dollar amounts.


Part III: Expense Reconciliation

Step Five:

Enter total of all expenses. The reconciliation must include any travel advances and expenses paid in advance by SJU; e.g.; airfare through Direct Travel.

Part IV: Accounting

Step Six:

Enter the fund and org number for each expense.

Part V: Approvals

The supervisor must sign and print their name with date. Include the department name. The person requesting reimbursement cannot sign off on their own travel reimbursement request.



Upon completion of the form, you must attach all receipts to the expense report. Any expenses not substantiated with an itemized receipt require completion of a missing receipt form. Upload your form and supporting documentation through TeamDynamix using the Request for Travel Funds form (TDxTFF).
