Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the adoption of a new policy on travel reimbursements for prospective graduate and law students. The policy, which is effective immediately, permits Lawrence Campus departments involved in graduate and Law student recruiting to use general use and restricted use funds to pay the travel costs associated with campus visits of prospective students.

The complete policy and specific guidelines are available at

We very much hope that the ability to use general use and restricted use funds to pay travel expenses in these situations will enhance your ability to attract top graduate students into your academic and research programs. As in the past, academic units also may use their KUEA funds for recruitment activities. If you have questions, please contact the Office of the Comptroller (; 864-3066 or 864-4-3276) or the Office of Graduate Studies (; 864-8040).

Fax: (785) 864-7209
