First things first!  If you haven't done so already, you will need Chrome River training before you can submit requests to travel.  Chrome River training is provided through a training video located in myAVC.  This training video walks you through the Chrome River System and collects the information ITS needs to provide you with access to the system. You MUST watch the video in it's entirety in order to be given access. Please reach out to travel@avc.edu with any questions.
