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.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Parents do not need to attend with their student. 

Examples of what your fly-in weekend could include:
