Travel Stipend Policy for Admitted Student Private Visits

Because we know you’ll appreciate the Dickinson Law community when you arrive on campus, we are happy to offer some financial assistance to help defray the cost of your in-person visit. Please review the following policies regarding travel reimbursement and hotel reservations for private visits.

  • All admitted students who visit Dickinson Law are eligible for reimbursement of up to $300 in travel costs (e.g., airfare, tolls, mileage, etc.) plus one night’s stay at the Comfort Suites in Downtown Carlisle.
  • To ensure that Dickinson Law will cover the cost of your room for a private visit, you must contact Lori Rogers in the Admissions Office at least 2 business days in advance of your scheduled visit and request that she reserve a room for you at the Comfort Suites in Downtown Carlisle. If no rooms remain available at the Comfort Suites, Ms. Rogers will book you a room at another nearby hotel. For accounting purposes, Dickinson Law must make your room reservation for hotel stays during private visits in order for the Law School to cover the cost.
  • Be advised that only the room charge, taxes, and fees will be covered; guests are responsible for Internet access, phone calls, and meals, as well as any other expenses billed to the room.
  • Admitted students who schedule a private visit are entitled to reimbursement if they sit in on a 1L class and participate in a tour of our facilities.
  • The Non-Employee Travel Reimbursement Form and the Non-Employee Information Form must be submitted to the attention of Admissions Office along with any accompanying receipts within 30 days from the date of your scheduled visit. Students should expect to receive their reimbursement via check within 6 to 8 weeks after submitting their reimbursement forms.
  • Only admitted students are eligible for travel reimbursement. Although guests are welcome to attend our open house events and to accompany admitted students on scheduled visits at the Law School, Dickinson Law is unable to reimburse anyone other than the admitted student for travel costs.
  • Students who plan to combine their visit to Dickinson Law with visits to other nearby law schools must provide us with the names of those schools and the dates of those visits.
  • Meals are not reimbursable expenses.
  • Additional funding may be available for individuals with demonstrated financial hardship. Please email Bekah Saidman-Krauss, Assistant Dean for Admissions & Financial Aid, with such requests.
