Sending a Fax

Faxing through email

The document you want to “fax” must be PDF format. This means when you save your Excel spreadsheet, Word document, etc., it must be saved as a .pdf rather than .doc, .xls., or other format.

  1. Open a new email.
  2. Delete any content (signatures, pictures,..) as this will confuse the computer server that converts your email to fax format. You will receive an error email if your fax was not successful. This could be one of the reasons it is not successful.
  3. Attach the document(s) you want to fax. If you would like a cover sheet to be the first page of the fax you are sending, be sure to attach that .pdf FIRST and then the additional pdf files. The server will then combine those attachments into one fax (first page being whatever you attached first).
  4. In the “To” put the following for internal faxes (On campus faxes): fax=the department’s four digit fax number  Example:
  5. For external faxes (anything outside of Regent – hotels, schools, individuals that own fax machines, etc.): fax=out number (9), long distance (1), area code, seven digit phone Example: (this is a legit fax number to a Hampton Inn in Manassas. Obviously if the number is local, just like a phone call, you do not need to include the long distance (1) or the area code. But do not forget the out number “9”)
  6. Send away!
  7. Check your inbox for confirmation email.


  • Internal faxes: (fax extension)
  • Local External faxes: (9, fax number)
  • Long Distance faxes: (9, 1, area code, fax number)

Note: If you do this through the copier then the steps are longer. It’s probably best to just scan/email a hard copy document to yourself and then fax it through your inbox rather than at the copier. Then you have the record of the sent “fax” in your personal sent folder. But if you do want to send through the copier, be sure to change the “From” or else you have no way of tracking if it was sent correctly (the “from” on the copier is the “Admin Floor”…cyberspace).

Travel Expenses and Reimbursement

  • Include as many details for your trip as possible, including time and date of departure, time and date of return, address of destination (if you need me to provide you with directions), any others I might need to make your travel arrangements.
  • You must give at least one week’s notice before you plan on leaving for a trip--no exceptions.
  • International trips require you to submit a special form.
  • The Business Office’s policy is that all copies of receipts must be submitted, including miscellaneous items from your trip (excluding meals) no later than 5 days after trip.
  • If you are traveling past Williamsburg, please request a rental*; If you are traveling locally (Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, etc.) please use your own vehicle and your miles will be reimbursed.
  • Please specify which Enterprise location, and if you will pick up the rental from their office or from Regent. Additionally, please save receipts from Enterprise and get them to our office.
  • Faculty have a $754 yearly limit for travel. If your trip exceeds this amount, any remaining costs of your trip must be covered by personal funds.
  • Refer to the University’s travel policies, especially “Non-Reimbursable Expenses.”
  • Hotel accommodations can be prepaid or you can pay and then we reimburse you, so it is very important you bring back your receipts.
  • If you are traveling on Regent business and must leave your car on campus, register your vehicle so that it is not subject to towing. More information on parking procedures and regulations can be found online.

*You must have an accidental pamphlet and an insurance ID card in the Enterprise vehicle at all times

Meal Expenses and Reimbursement

  • A meal expense per diem of $38 per day is allowed for employees traveling on university business.  If you spend less than $38, you keep the difference.  If you spend more than $38, you must cover the excess from personal funds. While the cost of any one meal may exceed the allowance, you may economize on some meals to offset the more costly ones.
  • If you receive a sufficient meal provided by the conference or the hotel, please do not also claim per diem for that meal.
  • It is expected that for partial days of travel at the beginning and end of a trip, the employee will utilize the per diem rates for the meals required away from home.  The following schedule will help you identify when you should claim a per diem meal on travel days:
Meal Per diem Requirements
Breakfast $8.00

Must depart home prior to 7:00 AM

Lunch $10.00

On Departure: Must depart home/Regent prior to 11:30 AM     On Return: Must return home/Regent after 1:30 PM

Dinner $20.00

On Departure: Must depart home/Regent prior to 5:00 PM     On Return: Must return home after 7:00 PM
