After your trip, please submit the following:

  • Original Receipts: Regardless of cost for Lodging, Car Rental, Meals paid on behalf of others, and Laundry. Also submit original receipts for anything over $75, for anything under $75, (except as noted for "regardless of cost" items) please make a note of the expense or send the receipt (this might include taxi, parking, etc).
  • Detailed Flight Itinerary: Departure and arrival dates and times are used to determine your total allowable meal per diem. Per diem rates vary from city to city and may fluctuate depending upon the time of year. 
  • Meals: No receipts are required for meals; you will automatically be paid meal per diem. Note if any meals were provided by the conference or paid for by anyone else, as these cannot be reimbursed. Your daily per diem will be reduced accordingly. If no meals were provided, please note this as well. This information is usually in the conference brochure.   
  • Conference Brochure: Or provide a link to the conference brochure with dates, agenda, etc. 

Submit all items to EMFin@uw.edu, and contact her with any questions regarding reimbursement.
