Travel Reimbursement Guidelines

Pre-approved NVC attendees may be eligible for travel reimbursement. Please review the following information prior to making travel arrangements. You are personally responsible for following the guidelines below.

Four things of special note:

1. Collin College's reimbursement policy requires that any airline ticket be purchased at least 21 days in advance.

2. Collin College will not reimburse for airline and hotel bundles purchased through online travel sites (e.g. Travelocity Orbitz, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) if an itemized airfare or hotel receipt cannot be obtained by the traveler. Many of these sites charge one rate for both airfare and hotel and often the hotel cannot provide the sort of itemized paid invoice that Collin requires for reimbursement. In general, Collin College urges you to avoid these on-line travel websites even if you're not buying a bundled package. If the travel website or the vendor (hotel, airline) cannot provide you an itemized receipt of payment, your expenses will not be reimbursed.

3. If you want to drive instead of fly, that decision must be pre-approved by the National CTC and by Collin College. Please let us know right away if this is your intention.

4. Please note that Collin College will not reimburse a hotel room costing more than $140/night including taxes.
