Visit Northwestern College, and we'll reimburse up to $300 of your airfare costs for a flight into Sioux Falls, S.D., or Sioux City, Iowa, and up to $225 for flights into Omaha, Neb., payable when you're accepted for admission. The reimbursement must be requested within one month of your visit and is subject to the following restrictions:
- Reimbursement is for airfare only and does not include baggage fees.
- You must stay overnight on campus in order to be eligible for the airfare reimbursement. If your trip includes visits to other colleges, Northwestern will reimburse you for a portion of your ticket cost, up to $150 (or $113 for Omaha).
- Only high school juniors, seniors and transfer students are eligible for the one-time flight reimbursement. Additional visits will be made at the student's own expense.
- Tickets for traveling companions are not eligible for reimbursement.
Northwestern will provide transportation to and from airports in Sioux City, Iowa (45 minutes from Orange City) and Sioux Falls, S.D. (1.5 hours from Orange City). Visitors flying into other airports should arrange their own transportation to campus. (If your trip includes a visit to another college, we'll provide transportation at least to or from the airport, but not necessarily both.)
There’s no fee for Preview Days. Lunch in the cafeteria for you and your parents is on us. If you arrive on campus the night before your Preview Day, you can request to stay with a current student in one of our residence halls. Since campus housing is limited to students, your parents will need to make their own accommodations in a local hotel.
Your parents are invited to join you for a Northwestern Preview Day. They may especially be interested in hearing from our financial aid director, professors and students. If you’re staying in one of our dorms overnight, your parents can check out our suggestions for nearby lodging.
