46 College Fly-In and Diversity Programs: A Complete List

What’s Covered:


Campus visits are a great way to learn about a college’s culture and determine whether it’s the right fit for you. Unfortunately, not every student can afford to visit every college on their list. If you’re unable to visit colleges for any reason, you should make sure to thoroughly review them online.


However, for high-achieving, underrepresented students, there is an alternative. Some colleges offer high school seniors fly-in or multicultural programs that are geared toward low-income, first-generation students, or those from diverse backgrounds.


While some fly-in programs were specifically designed to recruit students of color before affirmative action was struck down by the United States Supreme Court in June 2023, colleges have since changed their approaches. Instead of directly considering race or ethnicity in their selection process, they now focus on a broader definition of diversity. Nevertheless, students of color, along with all students who bring diverse perspectives and experiences, are still highly encouraged to apply.


The end of affirmative action has not impacted the emphasis on low-income and first-generation students within the fly-in programs. These programs and colleges remain committed to giving preference to students from these backgrounds in their admissions processes. Continue reading to understand more about these programs and how to maximize their benefits.


What Is a College Fly-In Program?


College fly-in programs are highly competitive college visitation programs for underrepresented students. Institutions fly students in to stay at their campuses for two or three days, allowing students—who might not otherwise get a chance to visit—to get a feel for the college and campus.


In most cases, the college covers costs, including transportation and room and board, or offers to reimburse you for some of your expenses associated with visiting their campus.


Most colleges just fly in admitted students, but some offer the opportunity to prospective students as well. Examples of these include:



Keep in mind that these programs are very competitive. To apply, you usually need to submit an application, essay, letter of recommendation, transcript with junior-year grades, and ACT/SAT scores.


Fly-In Programs: A Complete List

Preparing for and Making the Most of Fly-In Programs


There are several steps you should take to ensure that you’re making the most of this opportunity.


Do your homework.


It’s important to research a college thoroughly before attending its program. You want to make sure that you’re truly interested in attending and that you understand what the college has to offer. Plus, you should figure out what activities, courses, and other aspects of the school you want to investigate further.


Read our article, Your Step-by-Step Guide to Researching Colleges, to learn how to do this more effectively.


Look up what costs are covered.


In general, the college will cover transportation and room and board for your stay. Some colleges will also cover the cost of meals. Most colleges are unlikely to cover your parents’ transportation and costs if they want to come with you, though there are some exceptions, such as Vanderbilt.


Plan your visit.


Research which classes you want to observe and make appointments to talk to admissions counselors and financial aid officers before you leave. When you’re on campus, walk around and get a sense of the culture and atmosphere. Attend events and talk to students about their experiences. You’ll want to get a sense of your fit with the college and make sure you can see yourself going there.


Check out other resources for first-gen and diversity applicants.


Fly-in programs can significantly ease the financial burden of the college process. If you qualify, make sure to take advantage of this important resource.


For more assistance, check out these additional resources for first-generation and diversity applicants. They can help you apply and pay for your education. Also check out scholarships for first-generation college students.


What Are My Chances of Acceptance?


Fly-in programs are great for admissions, as they give you a chance to show demonstrated interest. Demonstrated interest is a soft quality that some colleges consider during the application process. It can refer to a wide variety of actions on your part, but it all boils down to this—have you proven to be enthusiastic, or at least curious, about the school you’re applying to? If you’ve completed all the steps to a fly-in, you’re definitely showing your interest!


Once you’ve done the research, taken time to visit, and discovered where you fit, you probably have a clear understanding of your opinion on the school. You know if you’re going to apply and you know where this school fits on your college list.


However, when you’re confronted with your acceptance chances, everything can seem overwhelming. We’re here to help! With a free CollegeVine account, you gain access to our free admissions calculator. This calculator will let you know your chances of acceptance based on your academic and extracurricular profile. It can also help you build a balanced school list.
