Travel & Expenses
UND utilizes the PeopleSoft Finance Travel & Expense (T&E) module to reimburse all University of North Dakota Employees for eligible business expenses. Employees must comply with North Dakota Century Code, as well as, North Dakota University System (NDUS) & UND policies and procedures for their expenses to be reimbursed. Please review the laws and policies governing your travel/purchase prior to completing the transaction.
For assistance with the completion of an expense report in PeopleSoft T&E, please review the guides and videos on our Training/Resources page.
We encourage the use of a University purchasing card while traveling. Most travel expenses (excluding meals) may be charged on this university issued mastercard allowing the payment of the expense to be made directly by the university.
