The following are NOT eligible expenses: Parking fees at the University of Minnesota, lodging, meals, books, or computer hardware or software.
For all expenses other than travel in a personal vehicle, the University of Minnesota requires an itemized receipt (not just a credit card receipt) in order to be reimbursed.
