This site is designed as an overview of WMU travel policies and procedures for receiving authorization to travel, reporting expenses and obtaining reimbursement when traveling on behalf of Western Michigan University. Travelers should also comply with any other authorization procedures required by their departments.
This online system allows individuals to create travel authorizations and route those authorizations to the approver electronically. Once the request has been entered, an e-mail is generated to the approver notifying them that they have a travel authorization awaiting their approval. Upon approval, the request is sent to the appropriate vendor if needed—either AAA for air travel or Enterprise Rent a Car for ground travel (Kalamazoo location only). Users will need their bronco net id and password to access the system.
University travelers using grant or contract funds must comply with all University policies and procedures regarding travel. There may be additional restrictions on travel when using grant or contract funds, such as Fly America Act, foreign travel and per diem restrictions. The travel should be included in the approved budget for the grant or contract. For more information contact the Grants and Contracts department at (269) 387-4707.
