It depends on the type of institution. Most four-year institutions will offer to cover candidates' travel expenses, but it's wise to ask ahead of time (don't just assume that you'll be reimbursed). Many community colleges, on the other hand, can't afford to pay for such expenses, though some will offer to cover a portion of candidates' travel costs or reimburse the candidate who gets the job. If travel expenses aren't covered, you may want to ask how many candidates are being interviewed before you decide whether or not to pay out of pocket.
