Visiting Weekend Travel Fund

We know visiting a prospective college or university is an important part of the decision making process. That’s why we’ll cover nearly all the visiting expenses for visitors joining us on a visiting weekend from the United States. That’s right—you pay just $50 and we’ll cover the rest.

Our visiting weekend travel fund is provided to first-time visitors who are high school juniors, seniors, and transfer students. We cover most travel expenses,* meals, lodging, transportation to and from the airport, and on- and off-campus activities during your visiting weekend.

Parents are welcome to travel to the College with their student, but are responsible for their travel and accommodation expenses. While we do provide free round-trip airport transportation for parents, many prefer to rent a car at their own expense. Parents are encouraged to use our travel agent to secure the same flight(s) as their student.

College visiting weekends fill up fast, so plan your visit now!

*The travel fund does not cover or reimburse checked bag fees. If you are driving to campus, please save hotel receipts and record your mileage. We will reimburse you for the approved expenses and mileage after you complete your visit. Flights must be booked through our travel agent at least 14 days prior to departure and only after your visit is approved.
