Mileage Reimbursement Rate

Effective January 1, 2016, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) updated the standard mileage rate for operating an automobile for business purposes. The IRS lowered the rate from 57.5 cents per mile to 54 cents per mile. The University is adopting this new rate effective immediately for all employee business related travel occurring on or after January 1, 2016. For any travel prior to January 1, 2016, the old rate of 57.5 cents per mile will be reimbursed to the employee.

An updated Travel and Entertainment Form will be published at under the Forms Section. Please use the appropriate form that corresponds with your travel dates. Please use this email to communicate this change to faculty, staff, and students in your respective departments, as necessary.
