  • Committee and Faculty FAQs

    • To get reimbursed for travel you will need to fill out a travel reimbursement form and send it to the TJCTC accountant, Sonya Rahrovi. Travel policies and procedures, including grant reimbursement restrictions, are detailed at the end of the form. 

      Mail, email, or fax a signed travel reimbursement form within 30 days of the date of travel to the TJCTC event. The Training Center is unable to process reimbursements after that point. 

      If you have never received a reimbursement from TJCTC or have not received one in the last year, you may need to fill out a vendor form. Please contact Sonya Rahrovi at for instructions.

    • In September, a full travel schedule will be sent to each faculty and committee member. 

      Additionally, before each program, a site notice will be sent out to all faculty & committee around a month prior to each event. Check the rooming list and schedule to make sure everything is correct.
