Please see below for the latest NKU Covid-19 travel reimbursement procedures for faculty, staff and students.
NKU Faculty and Staff Travel:
Travel for many Northern Kentucky University (NKU) faculty and staff has been affected by Covid-19 as business-related travel plans have become uncertain or canceled. As a result, NKU will follow the procedures below as a means of reimbursement for individuals who currently have approved university business-related travel in SAP and whose travel has been disrupted by the Covid-19 outbreak.
NKU faculty and staff members with unrecoverable out-of-pocket expenses may seek reimbursement through the MyNKU Travel Module as follows:
The NKU Accounts Payable/Travel department can answer questions regarding documentation and submission of these requests as needed.
Please do not book future expenses on currently approved travel. Instead check with your department head, supervisor or chair/school director on what resources should or should not be committed at this time given the uncertain state of travel internationally and domestically. The situation changes on a daily basis, and we will do our best to address these current travel concerns.
NKU Student Travel:
NKU students are also affected by Covid-19 travel disruptions. Students who have pre-approved travel relating to their NKU studies and/or NKU student- related activities who were planning on university-funded reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses can be reimbursed for unrecoverable out-of-pocket expenses through the following procedure:
NKU’s Accounts Payable/Travel department will be available to assist with processing reimbursements to students and will make every effort to assist departments and students to the best of their ability given the high volume of requests and changing travel landscape.
Student group leaders should reconsider non-essential future travel and out-of-pocket expenditures by students at this time given the uncertain and changing availability of travel through the summer months.
NKU Student Travel: Organized by the NKU Office of Education Abroad
If your student travel was organized by the Office of Education Abroad, please work with your contacts from that office directly. Education Abroad is already actively working on the majority of issues you or your NKU departmental representative (if working with another office) might believe they need to deal with, and Education Abroad is best equipped to get the student-related out-of-pocket expenses processed in a timely and appropriate fashion.
