What is a Fly In Program?  

Fly-in programs were created to make visiting an option for interested potential students.

There are several different types of programs that colleges offer. Some colleges will pay for all expenses related with a visit. The opportunities provided can include living in the dorms, attending a class, speaking with an advisor, taking a tour and visiting with student groups.
