Commercial air travel is generally the most economical and practical means for round-trip distances over 350 miles. The university will pay a standard rate per mile for university-related travel via private automobile up to 350 miles.
The standard mileage allowance (rate per mile multiplied by miles traveled) is intended to cover automobile expenses such as gas/fuel and lubrication, towing charges, physical damage to the vehicle, repairs, replacements, tires, depreciation, insurance, etc. This policy applies to gas, electric, and other alternative fuel vehicles. Refer to the Ground Transportation policy page for detail on using a personal vehicle for university-sponsored travel.
When requesting reimbursement for use of personal auto, the traveler should record the number of miles traveled and apply the following rates. Note that reimbursement is only allowed for the driver, and does not include passenger expenses:
