"Fly-In" Programs are free or reduced-cost opportunities for seniors to visit colleges. Application timelines vary. Many, but not all, programs are intended for underrepresented populations and/or students who are the first in their family to go to college.
Check the details on each college's website. In Fall of 2021, we expect that some programs to be in person (get vaccinated—it might be a requirement!) and some to be virtual. Either way, a fly-in is a chance to visit and get more detailed and personalized information than you would in a standard information session.
Search this list; Fall 2021 Fly-In Programs by Get Me To College. The list is a bit clunky, but this is the most up to date source I know of this year.
And, consult the websites of colleges that interest you for the most up-to-date information. If a college that interests you doesn't have a program, see if it has a virtual tour that will take you there for a few minutes.
Fly-In Programs to consider--NOT a comprehensive list!
Note: even if a deadline has passed, check the website to see if the program is full.
