University Travel

The Morgan State University travel section is the key resource of information and guidelines for business and academic travel on behalf of the University. We encourage all staff, faculty and students to become familiar with departmental and travel processes to ensure compliance with regard to the use of University funds. We will provide updates on a continuous basis to reflect the most current information. Please contact the Comptroller's Office at with additional comments and/ or suggestions on how we can improve our travel web site.
