A Travel Authorization (TA) for university business must be entered into the Travel and Expense Module. It is required for all travel related to conferences/conventions, travel (cash) advances, and foreign travel, when there is a registration fee, and when a university employee is stationed in a city or town and will be paid per diem for a period of over 30 continuous work days.

It is the policy of the Center for Latin American Studies that all travel should have a Travel Authorization in place prior to travel. Travel on Title VI funding requires additional permission from the Department of Education, and the requirements and restrictions should be included in your award letter.

Travel Authorizations should be requested at a minimum of 10 business days prior to the travel if you are a UF traveler. More time may be needed if the traveler has not previously traveled with UF funds.

Travelers are allowed up to 1 day on domestic travel and 2 days on foreign travel to reach destination and return from destination if needed.

The charges on the Travel Authorization are estimates of what you expect to spend.

For more information, read the UF Finance and Accounting Travel Guidelines.

To complete the Travel Authorization form you will need to provide us with ChartField information. If you do not know this information, please reach out to your Center Contact.
