Welcome to the Travel Homepage!

New Travel Authorization System Changes Coming Soon!


This site is designed as an overview of Western Michigan University's travel procedures for receiving authorization to travel, reporting expenses and obtaining reimbursement when traveling on behalf of WMU. Travelers should also comply with any other authorization procedures required by their departments.


  • Airline Travel Alerts

    Please use the Collegiate Travel Planners online portal for viewing important travel notifications.

  • Travel Online Authorization

    This online system allows individuals to create travel authorizations and route those authorizations to the approver electronically. Once the request has been entered, an email is generated to the approver notifying them that they have a travel authorization awaiting their approval. Upon approval, the request is sent to CTP for air travel. Users will need their bronco net id and password to access the Travel Authorization System.

  • Contract or Grant funds

    University travelers using grant or contract funds must comply with all University policies and procedures regarding travel. There may be additional restrictions on travel when using grant or contract funds, such as Fly America Act, foreign travel and per diem restrictions. The travel should be included in the approved budget for the grant or contract. For more information contact the Grants and Contracts Department at (269) 387-4707.
