Travel Support for Participants

Virginia Council of Graduate Schools (VCGS) will reimburse participants who are traveling on behalf of their community college to attend the Graduate Education Day at UVA on Friday, November 1.

(Member four-year colleges are asked to cover the cost of their staff, graduate students and undergraduates).

The traveler must complete the travel reimbursement form at check-in to be reimbursed. Due to state regulations, VCGS can’t reimburse institutions, only individuals.

For mileage: We will pay the driver the state rate for mileage from your starting point to UVA and back to your starting point.

We will pay the parking fee for the driver.

Lodging: For travelers who live more than 120 miles from UVA and may need lodging, we will reimburse you for a one-night stay at the state rate. Please provide your lodging receipt at check-in, as well.


Please contact Melissa Tyler at VCU with additional questions about travel reimbursement.

Please contact Phil Trella at UVA with questions about local hotel accommodations, parking, or other site-related topics
