Getting Reimbursed

York reimburses its employees for reasonable expenses incurred while on University business. Expenses will be allowed when incurred in accordance with the prescribed Hospitality policy and procedure and/or the Reimbursement of Expenses policy and procedure and are subject to audit.

Any deviation from policy requires advance approval from a dean, assistant vice-president, or higher and shall be supported by a written, detailed justification.

Steps for Getting Reimbursed for Faculty & Staff

After the completion of travel, an expense report needs to be completed in order to get reimbursed for your out-of-pocket expenses. The claimant (or an authorized expense claim preparer) is required to follow these steps when initiating a reimbursement request.

  1. Gather receipts, proof of payment and all other back-up documentation.
  2. Sign on to York's on-line expense system Concur Expense using your Passport York log-in. Note: Classroom training to use Concur Expense is available by visiting the York Employee Learning Calendar (YELC).
  3. Select "Create a New Expense Report" and begin creating your expense report.
  4. Electronically submit the expense report for approval

Providing there are no issues with the expense report, the usual processing time using Concur Expense is 5 business days once the report has gone through the mandatory approval flow and is cleared for payment processing. Reimbursement is issued via employee direct deposit into the claimants bank account. At the time of payment an e-mail is sent to the claimant advising them of payment.
