Preparing the Out-of-State Expense Voucher

The purpose of the form is to document the costs of a trip. Some of these costs, will have already been paid for by the college, such as the airfare and hotel, while other costs may have been paid out-of-pocket by you, such as baggage fees or shuttle fees.

The Out-of-State Travel Expense Report is required for reimbursement of your out-of-pocket travel expenses. In order for your out-of-pocket travel costs to be reimbursed, the costs must be allowable travel expenses pursuant to the college’s Out-of-State Travel Policy. Allowable travel expenses may include:

  • Conferences/registration fees, if prepayment was not made by CCRI.
  • Meal allowances and tips (per diem)
  • Shuttle and/or cab fares
  • Miscellaneous expenses

Documentation (ORIGINAL RECEIPTS) shall be attached as follows:

  • Airline ticket, or boarding pass, or printouts of electronic copies of either document.
  • Hotel receipt (room and tax only)
  • Car rental form (if applicable)
  • Shuttle, cab fare, parking fees, toll charges
  • Copy of Conference Agenda
  • Itinerary issued by travel agent
  • Other supporting receipts (none required for meal allowance – per diem)

An Out-of-State Travel Expense Report must be completed as soon as the traveler returns, but no later than the end of the following month.
