CMC Fall Diversity Fly-in Program

2020 Fall Preview Program

Saturday, October 3 and Saturday, October 10


Deadline: September 13, 2020

The 2020 Preview Virtual Fly-In Program application is now live! The deadline for all applications is Sunday, September 13, 2020

Claremont McKenna College continues to take informed actions in response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. As the situation continues to evolve, our top priority remains the safety, health and well-being of our community and prospective applicants. At this time, our Preview Program will transition to a virtual platform. 

During the Fall, Claremont McKenna College will host a virtual fly-in program for students from historically underrepresented communities - first generation American, first generation to college, students of color, low income students and students from rural communities - who demonstrate strong academic excellence and genuine interest in exploring all that CMC has to offer. This program is open for students who will be seniors in high school in the Fall of 2020. Prospective applicants get an inside look into the life of a "CMCer" and can expect the following learning outcomes:

  • Discover CMC: The opportunity to explore the academic and cocurricular opportunities offered at CMC through workshops with students, alumni, faculty and staff.  
  • College preparation: Providing information, tools, and assistance navigating the college application process.  

If selected, Saturday programming on October 3 and 10 are required.

If you have any questions please reach out to the Preview Program team at or 909.621.8088.
