OU GRA’s and GTA’s must abide by the travel rules set forth for OU employees. In 2016, the University set forth a new travel card system. It provides an efficient and convenient form of payment for approved OU business travel expenses. Employees must complete training prior to receiving the card, then request a travel card. The card can take up to 6 weeks to receive, so GRA’s and GTA’s are encouraged to obtain their travel card upon arrival, rather than waiting until they are ready to book travel accommodations. Information can be found at their website.

Students who are employed outside the School should primarily receive their travel funding from their advisor, but exceptions are made on occasion.
