​Personal Interviews

While not required, prospective first-year and transfer students have the opportunity to schedule a personal interview with an admissions representative. You’ll get the chance to discuss your high school experiences, interests, and future goals. 

Interviews are available on campus from July through December. Prospective transfer students may schedule appointments throughout the year. There is no difference between on- and off-campus interviews, and you may only schedule one interview.

Register for an Interview

Please note, interviews are for high school seniors and prospective transfer students.

Admissions representatives also travel to United States, Europe and Asia throughout the summer and fall. Representatives include staff, current students, and alumni. Click on your state or country below to see interview locations.

You may register for an interview in the events portal by using your desired date and select “Interview Off-Campus” as the Event Type. Then look for the interview location and times available.
