Travel Guidelines

Support for travel to disseminate scholarship, enhance professional development, and expand the global reach of curricular offerings and student learning is important to the mission of CSULB.

We are fortunate that the budget situation seems to have stabilized; however, previous budget reductions have not been fully restored and CSULB must continue to manage travel resources carefully.

Guidelines for travel authorization below apply to all student, faculty, and staff university-affiliated travel. Guidelines apply regardless of funding source (state, external funding, auxiliary, and non-state, foundation, etc., even personal if university-affiliated).
