Welcome to Michigan State University's Travel Website

On April 10, 2024 Concur will have a new look on both the mobile app and the web called Fiori.
  • To learn more about the Concur Fiori update, and to see it in action:
We are excited to announce Travel @ State Day 2024 is scheduled for Tuesday October 29th 2024.  More details will be provided soon

Travel@State provides faculty, staff, students, and guests with resources and information related to traveling on behalf of the University.

MSU has negotiated contracts with multiple airlines, car agencies, and major hotel chains. Booking travel through one of our preferred agencies also gives faculty and staff the ability to direct bill airfare and rail to their department/unit. For more information on booking through Travel@State, please refer to the Preferred Agencies page.

What is Concur?

Concur is MSU’s travel and expense system that streamlines the travel process for MSU faculty and staff.

What Concur can do:

  • Calculate per diems, currency conversions, and mileage
  • Book travel and link itineraries through the mobile app
  • Add a receipt to your Expense Report just by taking a picture
  • Allows travelers to separate business and personal expenses
  • Quicker reimbursements
  • Real time business intelligence on travelers and costs
  • If an event has occurred, locate our travelers and open a line of communication
  • Create cash advances and encumbrances during the pre-trip process
  • Automated auditing
Concur Travel Learning and Support Labs: Need assistance with a Request, cash advance, Group/Guest Request, Expense Report, Reserving/Booking Travel or other general related questions? Or, want to brush up on your Concur skills? You can do any of these by booking a one-on-one lab session with an expert who will spend 1-on-1 time, on your schedule, to work on the subject you would like.
