The rules regarding travel costs vary depending upon the legal relationship of the traveler to UAB. Before making any commitments for UAB to fund an individual's travel costs, it is essential that the traveler be properly classified in the context of that particular trip. Though many of the rules are similar, the documentation and procedural requirements are quite different. Please use the tabs on the left to properly identify the employee traveling, and view the related content. All reimbursements must have a completed W9 on file before reimbursements will be made.


Effective immediately, all domestic travel must be approved by the traveler's supervisor via a Travel Pre-Approval Form prior to committing related expenses.
