The Ohio State University will pay for reasonable and necessary expenses incurred by faculty, staff, students and eligible guests for pre-authorized business travel on behalf of The Ohio State University.
An individual is considered on travel status when traveling on official university business whether or not expenses are to be paid by the university. For daily commuting to and from home/work location(s), an individual is not considered in travel status and therefore not eligible for travel payments.
