Mileage Reimbursement Rate

Effective January 1, 2014, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) changed the standard mileage rates for operating an automobile for business purposes. In recognition of lower fuel cost, the IRS lowered the rate from .565 cents to .56 cents per mile. The University is adopting this new rate effective January 1, 2014 for all employee business related travel that occurs from this date forward. For any travel prior to January 1, 2014, the old rate of .565 cents per mile will be reimbursed to the employee.

An updated travel form will be published on the Financial Services website in the Forms section. Please use the appropriate form that corresponds with your travel dates. If you should have any questions, please contact Alice Hernandez, Accounts Payable Representative at campus extension 5833 or by email at
