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

My Fly-in Experience

Camry Martinez
Draper, Utah

My fly-in weekend helped make the decision for me to attend CSB/SJU by allowing me to witness the amazing sense of community we have here on campus. Everyone was so friendly and outgoing! It helped me to see where I would fit on campus, and the different kinds of opportunities I would have as a student.

During my fly-in weekend I saw a production of Macbeth put on by the theater department, participated in a photo scavenger hunt, and played Hide and Go Seek in the woods at CSB. All of these activities provided a chance to meet current students and explore the campus.

I think that without the fly-in weekend I would have been a little less sure of my decision to come here. It looked like a great fit on paper, but being on campus really showed me that I wouldn't be as happy anywhere else. It sealed the deal.

Booking your ticket...

For best flight and cost options, a three-week advance notice is requested. Requests made within three weeks of an event will be accommodated on a case-by-case basis.
