Calvin has over 300 international students, making it 5th in the nation among all baccalaureate colleges for the number of international students.

A limited number of travel vouchers are available for those that live in the U.S. and need assistance with transportation. Student travel expenses will be reimbursed as follows:
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
- Up to $200 of the student’s paid ticket will be reimbursed, with a receipt.
- IMPORTANT: Before purchasing travel tickets, contact Stephanie Brink at (616) 526-8421 (800-688-0122) to confirm that your visit reservation has been received and that space is available in that visit program.
Parents: Calvin will provide one night of lodging in the Prince Conference Center for parents accompanying their student on a campus visit. Meals on campus will be provided during the visit.
Students: Students will stay with student hosts in residence halls. Meals will be provided.
Reimbursement will be made after the visit. Students must attend all scheduled visit activities. Please submit a copy of the receipt for travel expenses to Stephanie Brink. Calvin will mail a reimbursement check to the student/family.
