Colleges and universities, especially if they’re outside of a reasonable driving range, can be difficult to get to in person for a visit. It’s a pretty integral part of choosing where you want to spend the next four years, though, and it should be more accessible.

There are a number of colleges that offer assistance using fly-in and summer programs, which cover or reimburse you for a portion, if not all, of the cost involved with visiting their school!




If you’re unfamiliar with fly-in programs, it’s when a college will help pay for your airfare and transportation to their institution. They typically provide housing and meals, as well, so that you can get a real feel for what it would be like to be a student at their college. They may have specific dates that they provide fly-in programs or it could be rolling, you just have to apply and say when you’d like to come.

Summer programs usually have very specific dates, or sessions, that they run over the summer. They can be anywhere from a few days to more than a week and often have a focus.

Over here at College Greenlight, we’ve put together a list of colleges that offer these sorts of programs, but we’re always building it up! If there’s a school you’re interested in, don’t hesitate to contact the admissions office and see what they offer. Whether it’s a summer program, overnight fly-in, or travel grant, there are a number of ways to visit your top choice schools.
