The MIT Corporation Office offers to reimburse Corporation and Visiting Committee members for expenses incurred during travel to and from the Institute for Corporation and Visiting Committee meetings.

We ask members to contact the Corporation Office  prior to making travel plans  with any questions about this policy or with any exceptional requests. Members who elect to travel in a class other than economy or who travel on multi-leg trips should obtain a printed price quote for a non-refundable economy fare for a round trip fare to Boston from their starting location. This documentation should be included with the request.

We urge all members to make transportation arrangements as early as possible to obtain reasonable rates for air travel. Committee members may take advantage of special MIT travel rates through Leeanne Locke (617-497-8138) at The Travel Collaborative.

Original receipts mounted on 8 1/2 x 11" paper (no staples, please) and a completed Travel Expense Voucher should be submitted within seven weeks following the meeting to:
The Office of the Corporation
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
77 Massachusetts Avenue, Room 7-203
Cambridge, MA 02139-4307
Submitting organized, original receipts with an expense voucher will expedite submission to the MIT Travel Office. Expenses submitted after the seven week deadline will not be processed. Please note that reimbursements will be processed in 8-10 weeks.
