The University of Maryland has a pre-approval policy for all incoming and outgoing travel for faculty, graduate students and visitors. The first step to arrange travel approval is to go to travelweb.umd.edu and complete a New Travel Request. Any questions about completing the form may be directed to . Graduate students' and visitors' travel requests will be routed to faculty approvers.
The University of Maryland College Park is currently under the policy of the “Fly America Act”. To read about the Fly America Act, a federal regulation that requires the use of U.S. carriers for travel that will be reimbursed from federal grants and contracts, please click here.
**Hotel reservations will be made once the New Travel Request has been submitted and approved. It is preferred that the hotel instructions be included in the New Travel Request rather than in a separate email.
Upon completion of the travel a Travel Expense form needs to be completed in order to be reimbursed for expenses including per diem reimbursements only. The exception is for those faculty, grad students and visitors not claiming any reimbursement. If no reimbursement for a trip is expected please notify the travel office by email at so we can close out the travel encumbrance.
