UA Travel Regulations (R05.02.060) 

The UA Travel Regulations were updated on November 1, 2019.

These regulations provide detailed requirements and guidelines for implementation of Board of Regents  Policy, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Regulations, State law and Federal Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200)  related to travel. 

They apply to all travelers including university employees when traveling on university  business, non‐employees, regents, students, advisory council members, volunteers, employee recruits,  and affiliates who have proper authorization to travel at university expense.

We are continuing to add guidance and scenarios to the sections below so please contact one of the main campus travel administrators if you have suggestions or comments.
