Travel Reimbursement

Employee Reimbursement System (ERS) is the University’s system used to reimburse both employees and non-employees for approved expenditures incurred during the course of University business.

Air Travel

Air tickets can be purchased online using Travel onLion or any outside booking site. Travelers who use outside booking sites may need to provide documentation that the lowest available airfare was obtained. Please review Airfare Booking Options and Services before purchasing your air ticket.

International Travel

International travel must be registered through the Travel Safety Network (TSN) at tsn.psu.edu. You will receive a receipt from TSN that must be included with your reimbursement request. 

If you are traveling to a dangerous country, registration will alert the Risk Management Office for additional review.

For travel with students or as a student group, please see the TSN website
