Flight Requests

For guests who live 250+ miles from campus, Oglethorpe is pleased to provide reimbursement for domestic airfare costs for the student and one parent or guardian up to $250 per person. Oglethorpe will provide complimentary travel to campus only once, and we do not cover lodging or additional fees such as checked baggage, seat upgrades, or airport transport.

All uploaded receipts are subject to verification and review. A valid ID is required to pick up reimbursement checks, which will only be distributed during Scholarship Weekend. Unfortunately, we cannot reimburse guests who do not attend Scholarship Weekend.

For flight reimbursement, please ensure all portions of the Flight Reimbursement Request Form are completed and submitted by Monday, January 8th, 2024 at 5 p.m. EST.
