To request reimbursement:

  • Begin the registration process for a SBTS Campus Visit here.
  • If your visit potentially qualifies for reimbursement, you will see a question on the bottom of the registration form that says “If you are traveling more than 80 miles to Louisville, your visit to campus may qualify for travel reimbursement of up to $100. Would you like to learn more?”
    • If this question is not present, your visit does not qualify for reimbursement.
  • Answer the remaining questions and submit the form. Within 1-3 business days we will inform you about next steps for your reimbursement.
