Travel Reimbursement 3

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, up to $750 of your fare will be applied as a credit to your Liberty University account once you begin your classes. Look for more visiting opportunities here.

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. Reimbursement is only applicable to the student’s fare and is only available to undergraduate students.

The following printed information must be brought to a Student Accounts representative in the Student Service Center (no electronic submissions will be approved):

    Don’t have either of these? Come see us anyway! We will take a look through our registration archives for a record of your attendance.

It should also contain your departure and arrival destinations.
