Reimbursement Guidelines


ICLE is pleased to reimburse contributors for meal, travel, and lodging expenses in accordance with University of Michigan policy.

After the Live Event or On-Demand Seminar recording, ICLE will provide you with a Travel Reimbursement Form. Please return it to us as soon as possible so we may begin processing your reimbursement. Expense forms must be received within 45 calendar days of the event in order to be eligible for reimbursement.


All original receipts (e.g., hotel, taxi, restaurants, airline tickets) with an itemized list of charges must accompany your completed travel expense report. Original receipts include credit card transaction slips or cash register or other original receipts, but do not include restaurant check stubs.


The University of Michigan processes most expense reimbursements in about six weeks. Please let us know if you have not been reimbursed in that time. Note that your reimbursement check will come from the university and will likely not contain any reference to ICLE.
