Interested in taking a trip? The student travel fund can help you get where you want to go.

The following are some of the important student travel funding details:

  • Trips that are awarded travel funds can be prepaid using the Student Leadership credit card or reimbursed afterward.
  • Student organizations must submit the trip in Community prior to being considered for travel funds.
  • A per diem will not be funded for any trip.
  • No cash advances will be issued prior to the trip.
  • For complete information, read through the Student Travel Funding Guidelines.

Requests for funding are not guaranteed and should not be assumed to be. Payments for approved travel are not guaranteed to be available before the trip’s departure. Requests are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information on the student travel funding process, please contact us at [email protected].

Report an incident or concern.

Serious concerns or incidents can be filed with the Office of Student Conduct and Care through report forms. Reporting forms are available to the entire campus community to utilize. Find the form that most aligns with the situation you wish to report, and the conduct and care team will ensure that the information gets sent to the correct office.
