University Travel Card and Reimbursement 

How do I apply for the University Travel Card? Who is eligible for the card?

All University employees that travel regularly for the institution are eligible.  The internal application forms can be found on the Travel Website. There is no external application or credit check.

Does the University automatically pay the monthly Travel Card bill?

The University makes payments to JPMorgan Chase based on approved travel expense reports where the receipt has been presented and used as support for an expense.  The individual cardholder is responsible for ensuring that the report has been filed. Additionally, the cardholder is responsible for any other unreimbursed charges.

How often does the University make payments to the card company?

Payments to JPMorgan Chase are made every business day based on the approved expense reports.

What happens if the card incurs delinquent or penalty fees?

The individual cardholder is responsible for all charges posted to the account.  Therefore, it is critical that the individual ensure timely filing of expense reports and review of monthly statements.

Can I use the card for personal items while in travel status?

The card should not be used for personal expenses or for those expenses for which the traveler will not be seeking reimbursement.  One exception to this rule would be meal costs.  Because institutional policy utilizes a daily per diem, a meal cost may exceed the allowed rate.  In that case, the individual may use the Travel card but would be personally responsible for the amount over the allowed rate.
