Per Diem Meals

Meal reimbursements are only available for trips requiring overnight lodging or to an individual who travels more than 100 miles (one way) and is actually away from home (SUU) for more than 10 hours while conducting University business.

Departure and arrival days qualify for 75% of the daily per diem rate regardless of the departure or arrival times

The per-diem allowance is all-inclusive. Additional expenses associated with a meal, such as sales tax, tips, etc. are considered part of the allowance. Service tips and other expenses not included on a receipt are considered incidental expenses and are included in the current per diem allowance. These amounts will not be reimbursed individually.

Discretion is given to departments to use a reduced per diem rate or require actual receipts in order to manage budgets.
