Students of Concern Policy

An ad hoc committee will be convened at the request of the department head to review information about a student of concern and make a decision about the student’s continuation in the program. Faculty and advisors who have worked with the student will be selected to sit on the committee along with the department head or the department head’s designee.
Procedures
1.The faculty member or person noting the concern will complete the Contact Report Form.
2.If it is determined that there is a need, a committee will be formed to consider the relevant information and make a recommendation.

Professional Purchase Request

Use this form to request the purchase of items for professional use including classroom supplies, books for research, new/replacement equipment, etc. To begin this process, complete the form and send a file attachment via email or hard copy to Kathy Nielsen, the business manager. She will then send it to the department head for approval. Once signed, she will insert the index number used for reimbursement and move it forward to RaNae Wamsley, the staff assistant who will then place the order.

Travel Authorization Form

Use this Travel Authorization form when traveling for the University, even if there will not be any reimbursement. It must be submitted and approved PRIOR to travel. Do not incur any travel related expenses until the TA has been approved. To begin this process, complete the form and send it to Kathy Nielsen, the business manages. She will then send it to the department head for approval, either in hard copy or as a file attachment via e-mail. Once signed, she will insert the index number used for reimbursement and move it forward to Nissa Boman, who will process your travel authorization.

Travel Reimbursement
The Travel Reimbursement form can be submitted prior to travel for any expenses incurred after approval of the TA and at least two weeks prior to travel. All expenses must be supported by a receipt that includes detailed information of the expense AND proof of payment. If you are unsure if your documentation is sufficient, ask Nissa. The quickest way to receive reimbursement is to sign up for Accounts Payable Direct Deposit. You can do this via Banner. Once logged in, click on the "Personal Information" tab. On that tab, click the "View/Update Direct Deposit Information" link, enter the required information, click save, and you are finished.

Membership and Conference Registration
Reimbursement for membership is allowed if the total cost of membership plus the cost of member registration is less than the non-member registration. If this is the case, you can be reimbursed for both because it is saving the university money.

Mileage Tracking Form
Use this form if you are tracking mileage for site visits, supervision, etc. over an extended period of time. If the travel is not tied to the semester (e.g. supervision) the December 15 and May 15 deadlines can be ignored.
