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.
