Procedures & Information


  1. Complete the online Faculty Development and Travel application and submit it at least 30 days prior to your departure.  In order to take advantage of early registration opportunities, the committee must have your application at least 10 business days prior to the early registration deadline to allow appropriate review time.
  2. Once the online form is completed and submitted, the application will automatically be sent to Greg Selitto at  You will also receive an email of the application form for you records.  If the application is complete and there are no concerns or issues, you will receive a decision from the committee on your award within 10 business days.
  3. Once you receive your award letter, you must make an appointment with Joan Clark (x2046) to arrange your travel. The FDT committee will forward your approved application to the Dean's Office and Business Services.
  4. Joan Clark in Business Services will make your travel arrangements which include:
    • Registering and prepaying your conference fee.
    • Booking and prepaying your hotel stay.
    • Booking your airline or train reservations.
  5. Travel arrangements must be processed through Business Services and will be directly charged to the fund, thus alleviating any need for you to use your personal funds. The College will not issue personal reimbursements for any of these costs. You will NOT be reimbursed if you make any of the above arrangements on your own.
  6. To receive reimbursement for other approved expenses (e.g. cab fare, per diem allowances) bring (or send) receipts and a completed Faculty Travel Expense form to Cristine Cordi, in the Dean's Office. All reimbursement requests must be made within 60 days of the conference end date.  For travel in May or June, all requests must be submitted by June 15.  There is $35 per diem allowance for food. DO NOT SUBMIT receipts for food. Once everything is complete, the College will reimburse you by check sent to your home address in US mail.
  7. Travel by personal automobiles will be reimbursed.  Please check with Joan Clark in Business Services (x2046) for the current mileage reimbursement rate.
