Moving & Relocation

Effective October 1, 2022, CSUSM will issue payment for reasonable estimated moving and relocation expenses without requiring supporting documentation. The payments are taxable under federal and California law and treated as supplement income for taxation purposes. 

This new process:

  • Eliminates the need for employees to submit receipts and significantly reduces payment processing times.
  • Relieves campus departments of hours of work in reviewing, denying, and/or approving expenses based on CSU and campus policies/procedures.
  • Provides a new employee experience that is welcoming and positive.

The one-time payments will be made to employees after the start of employment. 

Questions related to relocation expenses for faculty hires should be directed to Faculty Affairs, and questions related to staff/administrator hires should be directed to your department's HR Analyst.
