Travel Cash Advances

Cash advances are travel-related payments made before a trip begins. They should be used sparingly.

Cash advances are allowed when the travel requires special handling, such as foreign travel, group travel for athletics, bowl games, student groups, etc.

Travel Card Cash Advance

Employees that have a UC Travel Card should get a cash advance directly from any major bank's ATM with the associated PIN. 

There is a 2.5% or $2 minimum/$10 maximum fee for each cash advance. The cash advance limit is 20% of the card limit. Advance limits can be increased upon request.
