Overnight Travel Request:

A travel request must be authorized via SAP before any arrangements, NKU paid or otherwise, can be made.  The request is officially authorized once all system-required levels of approval have been received.  Travel expenses will not be reimbursed unless the travel was authorized in advance of the trip.  Travel Requests should be filed through ESS Travel Tab in MyNKU for any trip including overnight travel and overnight in-state travel. 

Estimate an amount sufficient to refund the traveler for out of pocket expenses. Items such as airline cost that may be charged to the Procurement Card should not be included in the estimated amount. Please use the Comments section to list the items and amounts (if known or estimated if not) that will be paid for on the Pro-Card. Only actual amounts spent will be charged to departmental budget. If a pre-registration is paid through the purchase requisition route and will not be paid by employee at the meeting, this amount is NOT to be included on the authorization. If a state vehicle will be used, the amount for that should NOT be included.
