I am pleased to announce that Ms. Yolinda German has accepted the position of Bursar for Business and Finance, effective February 16, 2015.  Ms. German comes to us from the Savannah College of Art and Design where she served as the Bursar/Director of Student Accounts for the past ten years.  She holds a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Accounting degree from Georgia Southern University, and a Masters of Business Administration degree from Ashford University.  Please join me in welcoming Ms. German to Armstrong.

I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to Ms. Jessica Weaver who served as Interim Bursar for the past few months.  She did an outstanding job and we appreciate her good service to Armstrong.

Updated Mileage Reimbursement Rates

Jan 9, 2015, 06:10 pm - Becky Smith

The State Accounting Office has provided updated mileage reimbursement rates for travel by vehicle.  Effective January 1, 2015, Armstrong State University will reimburse mileage for travel in personal vehicles at the following rate:

Tier 1 Rates:  Automobile    $ 0.575 per mile
                      Motorcycle     $ 0.545 per mile
                      Aircraft           $ 1.29 per mile            

Tier 2 Rate:                          $ .23 per mile

We ask that you research the most cost effective means when making travel arrangements.  Carpooling should always be utilized if possible.  When long distances are involved, a cost comparison should be done between driving and flying.  We also have a statewide contract with Enterprise and Hertz to rent a vehicle, which may provide more departmental savings depending on the mileage driven.

If you have any questions regarding the mileage reimbursement or any travel issue, please contact Daphne Burch at the Procurement Office at 912.344.2647.
