Professional Expense Reimbursement
Submitting a Claim
1) An updated PER form is provided to each faculty member, typically in July or August. The new form provides the carry forward amount, if any, and the updated PER amount available for the upcoming academic year. These forms are then sent electronically to each individual faculty member from the Dean's Office.
2) For the quickest process, it is recommended that faculty save a copy of this form and use this form to record a running balance of their PER funds and for subsequent submissions.
3) Claims are reviewed before submission to the Dean for approval and prior to sending to Accounts Payable. The review includes a check on the available balance in the PER fund, as well as a confirmation of eligible expenditures and appropriate original documentation/receipts, etc. If there are any questions, the faculty member will be contacted for clarification.
4) Alternatively, faculty members are welcome to contact Heidi Aiston if they do not have a copy of the PER form and/or the current PER balance. An updated PER form /balance confirmation will be sent as soon as possible.
5) Faculty would then complete the form, attach original receipts, submit to the attention of Heidi Aiston. The PER balance will be recorded and processed.
