Calvin Admissions offers travel funding to encourage high school sophomores, juniors and seniors who are international or exchange students and their host parents in the United States to visit for Fridays at Calvin or Monday at Calvin.
Travel expenses will be reimbursed as follows:
1. Air/Train/Bus transportation:
a. Up to $200 of the student’s paid ticket will be reimbursed, with a receipt.
b. IMPORTANT: Before purchasing travel tickets, contact Vanessa Abreu at
616-526-6106 (800-688-0122) to confirm that your visit reservation has been received and that space is available in that visit program.
2. Driving to campus: Up to $200 of the student's traveling expenses will be reimbursed. Reimbursement will be calculated based on mileage from the student's U.S. address multiplied by Calvin's standard mileage allowance.
For example, 154 miles traveled x $.55/mile = $84.70 reimbursement
