Foreign Currency

You may have a reimbursement for an expense made in a foreign currency. We cannot process this reimbursement without converting the foreign currency into US Dollars. 

The easiest way to do this is to use this handy currency conversion tool.

Enter the amount in one of the columns and select the currency you want to convert from and the currency you want to convert to. 

The converter will automatically make the conversion, but you should be sure to change the date of the exchange.

TIP: The date to use is not the date you are doing the conversion, but the date of the expense. If there are numerous charges for a trip you can add all the charges and do one conversion using the last date of the trip.

Please print this page and attach it to the Universal Expense Form that you have converted. Our office needs to send this page with any receipts that go to University Financial Services.

Contact your Financial Office Liaison with any further questions.
