Overview: Move/ Transfer Expenses

Find out about the move/ transfer policy for new appointees and transferring employees, including eligibility and reimbursable moving expenses.

Move/ transfer expenses include the reasonable costs of moving household goods and personal effects to a new residence. These expenses also include the cost of travel to the new location for the eligible appointee/ employee and members of the household.

General guidelines:

  • Senior management Group (SMG), Management Service Professionals (MSP), and Directors may also be eligible for a relocation allowance, which is equivalent to a taxable wage not to exceed 25% of the employee’s annualized base salary.

Guidelines for faculty positions can be found on the Academic Affairs Web site.
