Request an Interview

The Swarthmore College Admissions Office recommends interviews, but does not require them. If you plan to visit our campus, that is an ideal time to arrange for an interview. However, not every student is able to visit campus, and an off-campus interview with an alumna or alumnus of the College is a great way to learn more about Swarthmore, and provide additional depth and insight to an application.

Applicants will be scheduled for one interview only.

On-campus interviews are available for students planning to enroll as first-year students in fall of 2016. Swarthmore's on-campus interviews take place in the Admissions Office at Swarthmore College between Monday, June 1st and Saturday, December 5th. Schedule an on-campus interview.

Off-campus interviews are conducted by trained alumni volunteers. Off-campus interviews are available to students planning to enroll as first-year students in fall of 2016 who are more than a two-hour drive from Swarthmore's campus. Alumni interviews are scheduled from September through December; scheduling information will be posted in August.

Transfer interviews are available for current college students interested in transferring to Swarthmore College. Scheduling information will be posted in December.
