It is our intent to provide accurate, dependable and timely service to Mississippi State University personnel involved in business related travel. This would include assistance with monetary and policy questions before or after the travel occurs, travel advances and reimbursement of incurred travel expenses, payment of conference registration fees on behalf of the traveler, and accomodate the unique needs of those group and/or student travelers. We hope to always apply the policies and procedures of the University fairly and equitably while continuing to improve the services of this department in order to better accomodate the needs of University travelers.
