Travel Authorization Request (Faculty/Staff/Students)

IMPORTANT to read first:
The University travel authorization system is now available to Faculty, Staff and Students. It is a requirement for all NCSU travelers, regardless of reimbursement.  Authorization must be obtained from the Department Head prior to travel by submitting a travel authorization request.

PROCEDURES:

  • GO TO “ MY PACK PORTAL”.
  • CLICK ON GRAY TAB “FOR FACULTY AND STAFF”
  • CLICK ON “TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION” ICON
  • YOU ARE NOW AT THE “NC STATE TRAVEL CENTER”

If this is your first time using the "NC State Travel Center", you will be asked to create your "Traveler Profile". (Use the project ID 201559 for default) Starting with your second use of the "Travel Center", you will no longer be required to update your profile.  If reimbursement is being requested from Departmental funds, you must have prior approval from the Department Head.

From the NC State Travel Center, you create a new authorization by clicking on the "New Authorization " button.  If you have previously created a request, but did not submit it to the Department Head, it will appear in the "travel History".

The option is available to request authorization with "no reimbursement needed."  If you click on that option, you do not have to enter expenses. This is located under the “Travel Estimate” column.

There is a “Comments/Justification” field. Please provide the Dept Head with sufficient information to consider your request.

To forward this to the Department Head for consideration, click on the "submit for approval" button at the bottom.

You will receive email notification during this process.
