Visit UE

Fly-In Policy

Save Up to $400 When You Fly to Visit Us!

The University of Evansville attracts students from all over the United States, with many flying to and from Evansville Regional Airport. Our local airport is only 13 minutes from campus and is easily accessible, with direct flights to and from the hub cities of Chicago, Detroit, Dallas and Atlanta. Beginning October 2, 2014, flights will also be available to and from Charlotte, North Carolina.

To make it more feasible for prospective students to fly when visiting UE, we offer a ONE-TIME reimbursement of up to $400* for high school seniors and prospective transfer students only. (Parents are NOT eligible for reimbursement.) UE will reimburse you for half of your plane ticket, up to $200, following a campus visit. If you then decide to enroll, your account will be credited for the other half, up to a total of $400. Students from Alaska and Hawaii are eligible for a total of $500.

Receipts must be received by the Office of Admission within 30 days of your campus visit in order to receive reimbursement.

Here are some examples of how it works:

  • Jenny flies in from Denver, Colorado, and the total cost of her ticket is $200. We will mail Jenny a check for $100 a few weeks after her visit. She has a wonderful visit and can't imagine herself going anywhere other than UE. At Summer Orientation and Academic Registration (SOAR), Jenny's account is credited for an additional $100.

  • Tom flies in from Hartford, Connecticut, and his ticket cost him exactly $400. We will mail Tom a check for $200 a few weeks after his visit. Tom decides that UE is the perfect fit for him, and at SOAR his account is credited for the additional $200.

  • Mike flies in from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and his ticket cost him $475. We will mail Mike a check for $200 after his visit. Mike decides that UE is the only college for him, and at SOAR his account is credited for $200.

  • Kara flies in from Juneau, Alaska, and her ticket is $600. We will mail Kara a check for $250 a few weeks after her visit. Kara, of course, decides that she HAS to come to the University of Evansville. At SOAR, her account is credited $250.
