College Fly-In Programs
Some families and students options go beyond the current state and there are a few colleges and universities that offer FLY-IN Programs that will allow student and families to visit to have an Open House or Preview visits.
Pomona College is excited to announce that, this fall, we will be hosting our first on-campus diversity fly-in program since 2019: Perspectives on Pomona (POP)!
Students from diverse backgrounds who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education (including, but not limited to, low-income, rural, first-generation, undocumented and DACA mented students) will have the opportunity to experience the Pomona community by meeting students and faculty and exploring academic and social opportunities at Pomona. Participating students will receive shuttle transportation between local airports and Pomona College, on-campus housing, and all meals for the duration of the program. Travel grants are available to cover airfare expenses or, for local students, mileage expenses. All POP applicants also receive fee waivers to apply to Pomona. The Fall POP application will open by the end of May, and applications are due by August 15. Look out for 2023 Info Session!!!
2022 Williams College Windows on Williams (WOW).The WOW fly-in program provides more than 200 high-achieving seniors an all-expenses-paid opportunity to visit campus and experience the Williams community. WOW is a selective program open to rising seniors in the U.S. and Puerto Rico; preference is given to high-achieving students who couldn't otherwise afford to visit Williams. WOW participants stay in dorms with current students, attend classes, meet with professors, and learn about our admission process and our extraordinary financial aid program. Currently, WOW participants will be required to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination and booster, if eligible, in order to visit campus. We will notify WOW participants should campus Covid-19 policies change.
