What can my travel subsidy go towards?
We have different levels of subsidy that we can offer. Given the finite resources we can allocate, we will reimburse some portion of the following costs:
- your ticket on a plane, bus, or train
- mileage (if you drive)
We are not able to reimburse any of the following costs:
- checked bag fees
- meals while traveling
- trip insurance
- family member travel
If you received multiple travel coupons, please note that we cannot combine coupon offers. If you have questions about what your travel subsidy will cover, please contact us before arranging your travel.
What can I do during a visit to campus?
We welcome visitors throughout the year. With the exception of college-wide holidays, our office is open Monday-Friday, with some limited Saturday mornings, too. The actual activities you can participate in will vary depending on when you visit.
You are welcome to schedule your visit before you have been approved for a travel subsidy. Please note that our confirmation of your visit does not indicate that you have been approved for travel subsidy. If you are depending on our travel subsidy to support your travel to campus, you should wait to make any travel arrangements until you have received approval of your request.
How do I actually get to campus?
We hope it’s no surprise that we aren’t next door to the airport. Our campus is located in the charming historic river town of Northfield, about 45 minutes south of MSP Airport. There are daily buses between the Twin Cities and campus. Read on to learn more about how to actually get to campus.
Who can I contact for help?
