How do I get reimbursed for actual meals while traveling?

  • Actual Meals: When claiming actual meals, travelers should follow the University’s standard daily limit of $75. Exceptions over $150 per day require justification and approval of the Senior Department Finance Approver. Travelers should claim actual meals or per diems but not both in one trip.
  • Day Trip Meals: Day trip meals will be reimbursed as actual meals and require itemized receipts. Select the Day Trip Meal expense item in Workday Expenses. Day trip meals may not exceed the University’s standard daily limit of $75. Exceptions over $150 per day require justification and approval by the Senior Department Finance Approver. Day trip meals will be reported to Payroll. The amount will show on your payslip as taxable income and appropriate taxes will be withheld from your salary.
