General Travel Guidelines

Whenever traveling supported by URO you are a representative of Middlebury College and should act accordingly. You are also expected to properly steward your award which includes: traveling as a group and sharing expenses whenever possible, spending appropriately (no personal items or alcohol) and accurately reporting expenses (including itemized original receipts).

URO's AY 16-17 and summer 2017 mileage rate is $.34 per mile. The reimbursement rate is calculated by splitting the difference between the 2016 IRS mileage rate for business and volunteering.

You may also need to complete a field trip release form.
