How to Cancel a Travel Authorization

An approved Travel Authorization that has not yet been copied to an Expense Report may be canceled by the employee or proxy. During the cancellation process, a Budget Check is run to release (disencumber) the funds.

  1. Log in to CUNYfirst.
  2. Navigate to Financials Supply Chain > Employee Self-Service > Travel and Expense Center > Travel Authorization > Cancel
  3. On the “Cancel Approved Travel Authorization” page, select the checkbox of the Travel Authorization/s to cancel and then click the “Cancel Selected Travel Authorization(s)” button.
  4. The “Save Confirmation” page displays. Click the “OK” button. The “Travel Authorization Status” updates to “Closed” and may now be deleted.
