Fly-In Reimbursement Program

We understand the geographic distance and cost of travel make it impractical for most international students and U.S. students living abroad to visit our beautiful campus. However, we believe a campus visit is the best way to experience first-hand the unique Luther atmosphere and discover how Luther is different. Because of this, if you decide to see the campus and meet Luther students and faculty in person, we can help you offset some of the travel expenses with our Fly-In Reimbursement Program.

Program Details

If you are a high school senior who has applied for admission to Luther College, you are eligible for a one-time reimbursement of up to $300 toward the cost of a plane ticket. The reimbursement is not offered to family members and is only available for one visit during your entire college search process.

Luther will reimburse you for half the ticket cost, up to $150, following the campus visit. The airline ticket receipt must be presented to the Admissions Office at the time of the campus visit to receive the reimbursement. If you enroll at Luther, the remaining half of the ticket cost, up to $150, will be credited to your Luther account upon enrollment.

If you use frequent flier miles, a flight itinerary showing the number of miles used should be presented to the Admissions Office. Luther College will reimburse $200 for tickets that redeemed 20,000 miles ($100 following the visit and $100 credit upon enrollment); $250 for 25,000 miles ($125 following the visit and $125 credit upon enrollment); and $300 for tickets that redeemed 30,000 or more miles ($150 following the visit and $150 credit upon enrollment).

Luther College offers airport pick-ups in Minneapolis for two scheduled visit events each year. For this year, the visit events with airport pick-ups are Preview Day - Monday, November 16 and Admitted Student Visit Event - Monday, April 11. A Luther vehicle will transport you to/from the Minneapolis airport to campus.
