Here's how it works:

2. Confirm your date and plan your travel.
If you have applied to Union, sent in your transcripts 10 days before your visit (fax: 402.486.2566) and have a qualifying 2.5+ GPA, you are eligible for up to $250 in gas or airfare travel reimbursement (keep your receipts!)
Free airport pick up
We provide free airport pick-up from Lincoln (20 minutes away) or Omaha (1 hour away) airports. E-mail your itinerary at least one week before your arrival.
Bring a sleeping bag.
We provide up to two nights and three days of on-campus lodging and meals for a prospective student and a parent. In order to get a more complete view of college life during the school year, prospective students stay with our student hosts in residence halls, so bring a sleeping bag and pillow. Parents stay in our on-campus Ortner Center guest lodging with private bathroom, towels and queen-size bed. Ortner Center check out is 11 a.m.
During the summer: We provide two days' food and lodging on campus and students stay in on-campus hotel lodging with parents. We do our best to schedule the advising appointments requested, but please be aware that many professors travel over the summer and are not guaranteed to be available.
