Get Reimbursed for Traveling to an LU Event
Prospective Student Events
If you travel to a Prospective Student Event (e.g. College For A Weekend (CFAW), ExperienceLU, or DecideLU) via train, rental car, plane, or bus and then enroll as a student, we will reimburse your fare up to $750 once you begin your classes.
Please Note: The only Prospective Student Events that are eligible for travel reimbursement are College For A Weekend (CFAW), DecideLU, and ExperienceLU. This offer does not extend to other events or daily tours.
Travel Expenses Applicable to Reimbursement

If you travel to a location other than Lynchburg, you may be reimbursed if you rent a car for travel to Lynchburg, or utilize Transit Services to travel to Liberty. While personal transportation, such as a personal vehicle, may be used, it will not be reimbursed. In addition, the university does not offer shuttle services to and from various public transportation pick-up/drop-off locations.
