General Student Services Fund Travel

Last updated 12/16/2020

Registered student organizations can use funds for travel for various purposes ranging from conferences to program specific local travel.


The Division of Business Services have travel policy specific information.

As of 2019, student organizations are not allowed to use UW-Madison/System fleet vehicles due to liability reasons.

Before you make any travel reservations, you will want to connect with the SSFC Financial Specialist.
All flights will be booked through the Financial Specialist using FoxWorld Travel.
You can get reimbursed for uber/lyft/local transportation/taxis but must have a receipt and it can only be for travel to and from the airport or location of conferences (no recreational local transportation).

Conferences
When sending students in your organization to a conference, the SSFC allows for paid payroll staff to attend conferences. Volunteers and general members not on payroll are only allowed to attend when approved by the SSFC and need to be accompanied by paid staff.
The SSFC views conference attendance as a way for current leadership of the GSSF organization to bring back knowledge to the entire organization.
The SSFC is also the only body who can determine who can travel on General Student Services Funds.


If you have questions regarding travel, please contact the SSFC Financial Specialist.
