CCSU's Travel Office is a department within the division of Fiscal Affairs, which has the responsibility for processing travel authorizations and travel reimbursements, maintaining travel software, conducting training and for providing up-to-date travel policy information to the University's travelers.
The Fiscal Division is excited to announce that Concur is our new web-based travel system. The Concur Travel System may be accessed at https://www.concursolutions.com/.
The Concur travel solution offers currency conversion (for international travels), tracking of approval status, mileage calculator (google map feature), picture taking of receipts that can be uploaded to your profile and many more features. Your reimbursement (once approved by the Travel Office) can be expected 2 days after approval, if not earlier. You will receive an email advising that the Travel Office has approved your reimbursement and the amount approved.
