Paying Event Registration Fees

How to pay for registration for conferences, performances or other business related engagements.


What Is Allowable?

Registrations should be made directly with event sponsors.

Registration fees for official participation at conferences, conventions, training, or meetings related to University business are payable/reimbursable by the University.  Non-business related or optional activities (e.g. sightseeing tours, golf outings, family activities) or expenses for a companion traveler are not payable/reimbursable.

How to pay

Travelers and travel arrangers may pay for registration fees with a University purchasing card, a My Corporate Card or personal funds.  If a traveler pays for a registration fee with personal funds, the expense may be reimbursed prior to the trip.


Travelers and departmental staff should contact their respective Divisional Business Office for policy or procedural questions.

Divisional Business Offices may e-mail with questions.
