Fly-In Program

The application next year’s St. Olaf Fly-in Program will open in early 2023.

Thank you for your interest!


Thank you for your interest in our Fly-In Program! Attracting and enrolling students from a broad range of backgrounds and life experiences is central to the mission of St. Olaf College.

Who qualifies for the program?  We are looking for high-achieving rising seniors who haven’t visited St. Olaf and identify as students of color, receive free/reduced lunch, or will be first-generation college students.*

*At St. Olaf, a student is defined as first-generation if neither parent graduated from a four-year postsecondary educational institution.

What will you do during your campus visit? Here are a few highlights (subject to change):

  • Learn about our fantastic need-based financial aid program and the ins and outs of the application process
  • Interact with faculty and meet current St. Olaf students involved with student organizations
  • Experience our vibrant residential community
  • Explore Northfield (our college town)
  • Taste a delicious St. Olaf cookie (yeah, our food is really good as well!)

More information to come in early fall. If you have any questions about the program, please email us at  We’d love to meet you soon!
