Macalester Multicultural Fly-In Program

Macalaster College’s 2019 Fall Sampler and Multicultural Fly-in Program will be November 7-9.

African American, Native American, Latino or Asian American students who are currently high school juniors and interested in learning about Macalester College’s rigorous liberal arts program may visit with their counselors about the nomination process for Macalester’s Multicultural Fly-In Program. To qualify for the travel stipend, students must be:

  • U.S. citizens or Permanent Residents
  • Unable to visit Macalester for financial reasons

The Nomination Form for each student by Monday September 9, 2019. Upon submission of this form, Macalester will send an email to the nominated student encouraging them to complete a short application.  As part of their application, students must also include a copy of their high school transcript through junior year, senior year schedule, and responses to short answer questions.

Because limited space exists for this program, preference will be given to students whose applications and transcripts are received by September 15, 2019. There is a $75 participation fee for those requiring airfare purchased by Macalester.


Macalester will review applications and notify students of our decisions on October 1st. They will then work with the selected students to make necessary travel arrangements.

2017-18 Schedules

Schedules are anticipated to be available on Parent Vue/Student Vue starting on Wednesday, July 26th.  Every effort was made to honor all course requests. However, students and families are reminded that there may be some course requests which were not possible due to time conflicts with required classes, not enough students enrolled for the class to be held,  did not meet the prerequisite, or was not recommended as appropriate placement.

As noted in the LSW Course Planning Guide, schedule change requests will be made on a limited basis if they meet one of the following criteria:

  1. Senior needs a class for graduation and/or college entrance requirement
  2. Student doesn’t meet the prerequisite
  3. Student has already received credit for course
  4. Student has a See Counselor that needs to be replaced.

If a request meets one of the above criteria, then the  Schedule Change Request Form 2017-18 may be completed and submitted to the Main Office for counselors and administrators to review prior to the start of the 2017-18 school year. The Schedule Change Request Form 2017-18 is available by clicking here or stopping by the LSW Main Office.

Please remember that the Counseling Center is currently closed for the summer and counselors will be checking email on an intermittent basis throughout the summer break.
