ASU’s travel guidelines have been updated for all faculty and staff traveling on the university’s behalf, regardless of funding source. Please read and follow the guidelines located on the Process for Taking Trips page for the latest information. Updated 7/27/2021


All trips with an overnight stay are processed in My ASU TRIP. The request must be approved before travel occurs and an expense report submitted within 30 days after a trip ends. My ASU TRIP is an end-to-end travel system for ASU faculty, staff, and students to create trip requests, book travel, and submit expense reports.

Authorized Driver Program

All ASU employees who drive university owned, leased or rented vehicles (including electric carts), for official business, or that will be renting a car for travel, must complete the Authorized Driver Program.


The ASU travel department offers My ASU TRIP training through Career EDGE. They also offer the My ASU TRIP manual which is a step-by-step process guide located on the ASU Travel website.

ASU’s air travel is responsible for about 45,000 metric tons of emissions each year. To offset the equivalent to these emissions, the university assesses a $12 fee for carbon offset that is added to all round-trip ASU-sponsored air travel. Purchased offsets will help establish the ASU Carbon Project, the program for mitigating ASU’s emissions while supporting the community, education and research. For more information on the Carbon Project visit the Price on carbon for air travel FAQs page.
