National Fly-in Weekend Program

The National Fly-in Weekend program is designed specifically for accepted students from outside of Minnesota. We will pay for, at least, half of your travel costs through our National Travel Assistance Program. We also arrange a three-day, customized campus experience for you. While we will assist you in visiting us anytime, we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to see our campuses and get to know future classmates from across the country! For more information, please contact your admission representative.


  • We require a $50 fee (non-refundable; will be applied to the student's portion of the airfare) to reserve your spot. 
  • You must be in the process of applying for admission or accepted to attend a fly-in weekend.
  • These are three-day, two-night events. Please check your personal calendar carefully before registering for a fly-in weekend.

Examples of what your fly-in weekend could include:

Did your fly-in experience influence your decision to attend CSB/SJU?
My fly-in experience helped solidify my decision to attend CSB/SJU. The campus was beautiful and my initial thought was that I can really prosper here.

What did you all do during your Fly-in Weekend?
During my Fly-in weekend I met a lot of future Bennies and Johnnies, talked with older CSB/SJU students who had went to my high school, and enjoyed a customized campus visit schedule. 

I believe it was more beneficial to attend a Fly-in Weekend than an individual visit because all the people I met were deciding whether or not to attend a college that was a considerable distance from home. I met a lot of students from across the country and many of them are still my friends today!

What did the CSB/SJU community do to make you feel welcome during your visit?
The CSB/SJU community is made of nice people who genuinely want to help. This was obvious throughout my visit!
