As graduate students, we can apply for what is known as a Travel & Expense (T&E) card.
The Travel and Expense (T&E) Card is available to eligible university employees to pay for allowable travel expenses incurred while on official university business and for the acquisition of goods or services supporting university operations. An important caveat is that these cards may not be used for personal purchases, unauthorized transactions or shared with another individual and there must be an index associated with the card.
If you have questions about the policy or eligibility, take a look here for helpful videos for helpful videos or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are also some really helpful videos to introduce you and to help you navigate the interface known as “Concur” that OSU uses for travel, expenses, and reimbursements. You can catch those here.
