[WKU FACULTY] How to apply for Travel Expenses? (Quarantine, Travel, Home, Conference)

by Jeonghwan (Jerry) Choi 2021. 4. 20.

How to Apply for Travel Expenses in WKU as an international faculty! 

Since 2020 under the pandemic, WKU Finance department (Director Sailing) and WKU Admins changed the policy of application of cost/expenses. 

 

The New policy urges that individual faculty members should apply for the travel or the benefit expenses by using the WKU cost center system. 

Until the policy can be improved or changed, we - WKU international faculty members need to apply for travel or benefits expenses. 

 

 

Three type of Travel Expense applications:

 

1. Quarantine Expense Claim Application (Only for Quarantine Accommodation)

 

2. Traveling Home (International) Expense Application (A. Cost application & B. Expense Claim)

 

3. Academic Travel (e.g. Conference) Expense Application (A. Cost application & B. Expense Claim): Almost same to the Traveling Home processes. 

 

According to you travel expense type, please create one "Expense Claim" for each different expense type. 

 

 

=========================

Here are my experiences and guides when you apply for Quarantine expenses.  

 

1. Quarantine Expense Claim (Only for Quarantine Accommodation)

 

2021. 09.23: Quarantine Expenditure Application

 

1. Go to wku.edu.cn  and click my wku

You must login with your WKU ID/PWD (Not Kean ID/PWD). 

 

*Remarks: From Aug. 2022, the system redirect you to the https://once.wku.edu.n/porta/teacher if you login with your ID/PWD. 

Don't worry, you can find below Menu (Expense Claim)
