Fly/Drive Bluffton

If you re interested in attending Bluffton University, we're determined to make it feasible for you to get here. That's why we created the Fly/Drive Bluffton program. It's our way of providing financial assistance to students who fly or drive long distances to visit our campus whether you come for a personal tour or visit on one of our special event days.


If Bluffton is 300 miles or more from where you live, the Fly Bluffton program is right for you. We offer financial assistance to students who travel by air to visit Bluffton. Simply call the admissions office and we will assist you in making the necessary arrangements. We encourage you to consider visiting during one of our special visitation events such as Discovery Day or Explore Academics@Bluffton.

When you visit, bring the receipt for your ticket and we will reimburse you for half the fare. Should you then choose to enroll at Bluffton your account will be credited for the other half of your airfare. The maximum total amount of reimbursement will not exceed $500. Your visit must be pre-arranged with the admissions office to qualify for the Fly Bluffton program.  


We also offer financial assistance for students who prefer to keep their feet on the ground, or for those who want to bring the whole family! If you live at least 250 miles from Bluffton, we will reimburse your drive to visit campus at a rate of 15 cents per mile up to a maximum of $100. Keep track of your mileage and let us know upon arrival. Again, we encourage you to consider visiting during one of our special visitation events, but personal visits during the week also work well.
