Visiting campus is a critical part of the college selection process, but for those living a great distance from Storm Lake, traveling to visit isn’t always easy. For that reason, BVU will reimburse students $250 for the costs associated with one eligible visit to campus. Our Office of Admissions has the following criteria:
- Distance from campus—To qualify, eligible students must live at least 400 miles from Storm Lake, Iowa. Roughly speaking, those living in the following cities would meet the criteria: Chicago, Ill.; North Platte, Neb.; Cloquet, Minn.; Rapid City, S.D.; Fargo, N.D. (this is just less than 400 miles); and Springfield, MO.
- Apply! Eligible students must be admitted to, and receive, a financial aid award from BVU before payment is made; however, there is no obligation to enroll.
Payment will be made when all criteria are met. While this payment is taxable, BVU will not mail any tax documents.
