We recognize the need for faculty and staff to travel for conferences, events and other legitimate purposes to enhance programming, research, and/or outreach endeavors.
At the same time, as a state agency, we must safeguard our travel privileges and funds. We must practice fiscal, ethical and public responsibility. Therefore, we have established per diem guidelines when using SFA funding. This policy sets forth rules and procedures that balance the school’s legitimate travel needs with sound stewardship of public resources.

University Travel is Up and Running Again!
• Preapproval: The University requires employees to submit their Travel Requests for pre-approval in Concur for travel
that involves any travel segment (Airfare, Hotel or Car Rental) for employees, students and guests.
• Travel agent: University travel is booked through our travel agent, Anthony Travel, using the University-sponsored
Travel card (T-card)
• Driving: If choosing road or rental car over air travel, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss strategies for best
supporting your trip.
