Davidson College Fall Fly-In

posted Aug 15, 2018, 6:04 AM by East Burke High School

Davidson College invites you to share information about our fall fly-in program with your top students. Access Davidson (formerly the Multicultural Visit Program) will be held October 14-16, 2018. Visiting students will arrive Sunday evening for a two-night visit and will return home on Tuesday evening. In addition to staying overnight in a residence hall, students will attend class and interact with current Davidson students, faculty, and staff.

To apply for the program, students must complete the following steps:
  • Submit a completed Access Davidson application
  • Upload a complete transcript including their senior schedule
  • Upload a copy of standardized test scores (SAT or ACT)
  • Upload a copy of the high school profile (if available)
Priority will be given to students who have not yet had the opportunity to visit campus. Davidson College will cover the direct expenses associated with a visit to campus for each student, including airfare to and from the student’s home airport and Charlotte, ground transportation to and from campus, meals during the visit, and overnight accommodations.

The admission committee will review submitted applications and notify students if additional information is required. The priority deadline for application submission is Monday, August 27; the final deadline for application submission is Monday, September 10. While all applications submitted by the final deadline will be considered, the admission committee will begin reviewing and selecting students to participate following the priority deadline; thus, the applicant pool becomes more competitive after the priority deadline. Decisions will be communicated no later than Monday, September 24.

Please know that space is limited. We will select approximately 50 students to participate. If a student accepts our invitation to visit and then chooses to cancel after air travel tickets have been purchased, the student will be responsible for reimbursing the school the cost of the ticket.

Please contact with any questions. We look forward to working with you.

All the best,
