Travel Advances

Payment and reimbursement for travel expenses is made
in accordance with the rates, standards and practices
established by the CSU Chancellor’s office as published in the
CSU, Chico Travel Procedures.


Advances for travel are limited to: 

  • Team travel with the advance being issued directly to the faculty/staff member responsible for the group
  • Foreign travel (CSU, Chico does not have monetary exchange or wire transfer capability)
  • Employee financial hardship warranting alternative review, at discretion of Financial Services

To request a travel advance, contact Accounts Payable. Travel advances will not be issued more than 10 business days prior to the travel departure date. A Travel Expense Claim form must be submitted within 30 days of return from travel; if any amounts are due to the University, a check payable to CSU, Chico must accompany the Travel Expense Claim form.
