Colorado State University travel policies require use of specific forms and strict adherence to procedures in order to avoid disallowed expenses and the possible perception of personal benefit. Travel policies and procedures may not be overridden by conditions attached to sources of funding (i.e. grants & contracts). All travel charged to the University must be for the benefit of the University and accomplished by the most economical means available to satisfactorily achieve the (necessary) purpose. Complete policies and printed procedures are located in the Financial Procedure Instruction Manual (section D.3).
There are separate policies and procedures related to International Travel as well as Faculty/Administrative Professional Manual rules and procedures regarding travel.
All students are permitted to travel in association with the business of their registered student organizations(s). Drivers and passengers are expected to follow University policy and federal, state, and local laws. All travel must be authorized in advance by the student organization's faculty/staff adviser and/or sports coordinator, documenting the benefit and its relation to the primary purpose of the University. Duly authorized University representatives may be provided liability protection if the use is consistent with their responsibilities.
