Admissions

Top Colleges that Come to Visit You

0 Comments 17 May 2017

Students from underrepresented backgrounds often are eligible for college fly-in programs, where colleges fly in students for campus visits. Some colleges, however, go an extra step and jointly travel to the students as a group.

These programs, which travel across the country and give students the opportunity to meet with campus officials from top colleges and universities, make it easier for underrepresented students to learn about selective institutions.

Here is a list of travel programs that give students opportunities they might not otherwise have:
