Student Travel

University Travel & COVID-19: please follow current CDC Travel Guidelines.

Authorizing Student Travel

  • Please complete a Travel Authorization Form for Students before making travel arrangements and purchases. Please be sure to clearly describe the travel's benefit to the university on all student travel authorization forms. For common examples please see WWU vs Student as Primary Beneficiary.
  • If the student is an employee traveling for their job, they are authorized and reimbursed via Concur instead. Refer to the Travel Authorization page for more information.
  • Optional: if a student is traveling with a university employee, include the student's name and expenses on the employee’s Concur group TA Request. This will serve as the student's travel authorization and the separate webform TA my not be necessary. Colleges and departments may have more restrictive policies.
