Out of State or Country Travel Authorization & Liability Form
Quick Reference Travel Guide for NDSU Employees
The online liability form is used to document travel for insurance or liability purposes, so it is crucial to include your travel plan and the telephone number at destination on the liability form. Travelers must fill out the liability form when going out of state on NDSU business, even if that travel is not financially supported by NDSU.
while funding requests are not guaranteed, all Travel fund request forms require the signature of the Department Chair and department support before going to the AHSS Dean. In addition, NDSU requires that out of state travel be approved by the department chair and Dean; out of country travel needs to be approved by the Chair, Dean, and Provost.
