Fly-in Programs

Tufts Diversity Experience: Tufts would like to invite interested high school seniors the opportunity to experience academic and social life by staying with an undergraduate, attending lectures provided by professors, eating in the dining halls, and attending a performance of Tufts musical and dance performance groups.  The Voices of Tufts Diversity Experiences are overnight programs sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to expose high school seniors to the diversity that exists on the Tufts campus.  While Voices has traditionally attracted participants from varied backgrounds – including students of color, first generation college-bound students, LGBT students, students from low-income backgrounds, and students from rural communities – any high school senior interested in learning more about diversity at Tufts is welcome to apply.  Students may discover that Tufts is a perfect match for them! 

The Voices Engineering Experience will take place October 19-20, 2017 with an application deadline of 5PM EST on October 3, and the Voices Arts & Sciences Experience will take place October 26-27, 2017 with an application deadline of October 11 at 5PM EST. The priority deadline for prospective Arts & Sciences students seeking travel assistance funding is October 4.

The application consists of a 100-word essay addressing your interest in the program, a high school transcript (including senior year courses), test scores (if available), and a recommendation from your college advisor.  Travel assistance is available for students for whom the trip to campus would present a financial hardship.  Please forward this information to any senior who may be interested in Tufts University or whom you feel is potentially a good match/fit and will benefit from a visit to our campus.  For more information about Voices and the application process, please view our website at http://admissions.tufts.edu/voices.   Thank you for your time.  Please call 617-627-3170 with any additional questions.

University of Chicago Fly-In Program: Deadline September 6, 2017

The Discover UChicago Fly-In application is now open. Discover UChicago is an all-expenses-paid opportunity for underrepresented high school seniors (e.g., underrepresented students of color, first-gen, or low-income students). Through this program, participants discover the city of Chicago with current UChicago students, spend a night on our campus, and learn more about the great academic and campus life programs that the University of Chicago offers. Students will fly into Chicago’s Midway Airport on Sunday, October 8, experience an exciting day of programming, and depart Chicago after attending our Fall Open House on Monday, October 9.

Space for the Discover UChicago Fly-In Program is limited and an application—which includes a short essay, an unofficial transcript, and self-reported SAT/ACT scores—is required. Talented students interested in learning more about UChicago and participating in this program should submit an application by Wednesday, September 6.

Thank you for sharing this great opportunity with your seniors! If your students have any additional questions, they can contact me at scjohnson@uchicago.edu.

Sincerely,

Best,

Marina Offner
Associate Director

 

Colorado College Fly-in Program: Deadlines August 15th & September 21st, 2017

As you know, a campus visit is one of the most important steps of the college search process. We highly encourage all students who can to visit campus ahead of making a final decision. Our standard campus visits include an information session, campus tour, and lunch in our dining hall, while we also can host overnight visits with a current student, and a Block Plan class visit. However, access to our regularly offered — Monday-Friday (and Saturday in the fall) visit schedule — can be difficult for many students.

To make the campus visit experience accessible to everyone, we offer two Funded Campus Visit opportunities in the fall. For these programs, we fund travel and lodging for the student and one parent/guardian. To qualify, students must either self-identify as a student of color, qualify for the Pell Grant, and/or receive free/reduced lunch.

Apply: https://www.coloradocollege.edu/admission/introduceyourself/visit/fundedcampusvisits/

Program 1: September 30 - October 2, 2017
Deadline to apply: August 15, 2017
Decision Release: September 1, 2017

Program 2: October 28-30, 2017
Deadline to apply: September 21
Decision Release: September 30, 2017
