Subject: Change to Travel Advance Process
The University will be discontinuing the use of American Express Travelers checks effective June 30, 2006. While the University encourages the use of the American Express Corporate Travel Card as a substitute, we recognize that there may be situations that require travel advances.
Therefore, in accordance with the travel reimbursement policy located at: http://www.temple.edu/controller/travel, travel advance requests will be directly deposited to your bank account. If you do not have direct deposit, a check will be generated within 24-48 hours.
The travel advance request form, along with instructions is located at: http://webserv.adminsvc.temple.edu/employeeforms/Travel.htm.
In addition, information on how to apply for an American Express Corporate Card and the application form can be found on both websites listed above.
Reminder: Travel Advances may be requested up to one week prior to departure date and must be settled within two weeks of return date.
If you have any other questions, please contact the Lydia Vasquez at (215) 204-5278 or Carmen Corsino at (215) 204-5279.
