We expect that you will make your own travel plans and we will reimburse you for that travel. Unfortunately, we have a limited travel budget so we must place an upper limit on the reimbursements based on where you are coming from. So make your plans early to secure lower fares.
Please note that our budget constraints only allow us to cover up to $500 for any international students attending our Open House from overseas destinations (excluding Canada).
If you plan on visiting other nearby institutions (NYU, Stony Brook, Yale, Princeton, ...) at around the same time, we would certainly appreciate being able to share travel expenses with them. Let us know if that is in your plans.
We will provide you housing on Sunday and Monday nights. We also provide dinner on Sunday in addition to breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Monday of the Open House. Therefore, your main expenses will be transportation costs and breakfast on Sunday.
