If you are taking public transportation, please save all receipts, which you will paper clip to your Reimbursement for Transportation Form that will be distributed at the end of the semester in your class. Receipts are not required if you are taking bus transportation. Fill out the form where highlighted, including information requested on the back and bring or send to the Educational Studies office, 221 Pearson Hall.

If you are driving a car, total your miles on the back of the form. You will be reimbursed according to the current reimbursement rate up to a certain limit. If you drive other students, know that your personal insurance must cover your passengers.

Bryn Mawr and Haverford students should check with their college dean for obtaining reimbursements.
