College Fly-In Programs

COLLEGE FLY-IN PROGRAMS
Visiting campus is one of the most important steps in deciding if a particular college is right for you. Because of this, most colleges offer weekend programs where students can spend a couple nights on campus, and get to know the students and faculty who bring the college to life.

However, traveling to these campuses can be extremely expensive. Here's a list of colleges that offer travel assistance for students who demonstrate financial need.  Also included are a few programs that might not offer travel assistance, but are fantastic opportunities for multi-cultural students. Please see the notes below each program for details on what they offer.  Many of these programs will start accepting applications soon, so make sure to bookmark your favorites. 

If (*) the trip is free. If (D), trip is for first generation students.
