Request an Interview
The Swarthmore College Admissions Office offers interviews, but does not require them.
On-campus interviews are available for prospective first-year applicants entering college in fall of 2016. We have limited on-campus interview availability. Swarthmore's on-campus interviews take place in the Admissions Office at Swarthmore College between Monday, June 1 and Saturday, December 5, 2015. Schedule an on-campus interview.
Off-campus interviews are conducted by trained alumni volunteers. Off-campus interviews are available for prospective first-year applicants entering college in fall of 2016, generally who are more than a 90 minute drive from Swarthmore's campus. Alumni interviews are scheduled from September through December, and are subject to availability. Requests for off-campus interviews must be submitted by Friday, December 4, 2015. Request an off-campus interview.
Both interview formats are given equal consideration in our process, and prospective first-year applicants will be scheduled for one interview only.
Prospective Fall Early Decision applicants who wish to interview are encouraged to complete an on-campus interview by Monday, November 16, 2015, or request an off-campus interview by Friday, October 23, 2015.
