CMC Fall Diversity Fly-in Program

Proud CMS Athena and Stag jump with joy at 2019 Family Weekend

2022 Fall Preview Program

Dates TBD

Application will open in Summer 2022


The 2022 Fall Preview Fly In program application will open in Summer 2022

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 2022. 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, virtual Saturday programming on October 2 and 9 are required.

As COVID restrictions and guidelines evolve over the summer in California and Los Angeles County, we hope to bring students admitted to the Preview Program for a 2 day visit in small groups during October and November. More information will be shared with Preview Program participants in September. 

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