Request an Interview

One-on-one conversation

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we will be offering virtual interview options for rising seniors in lieu of our typical on-campus interviews until further notice.

Why should you interview with us? While your application gives us a lot of information, a face-to-face conversation helps us learn more about you as an individual. 

Interviews are not required. Applicants who do not interview are not at a disadvantage, and Swarthmore does not practice ‘demonstrated interest’ in its application review process.

Please select the appropriate option below for more information.
 

For Students Attending High School in the U.S.

Virtual fellow interviews (conducted via Zoom with a trained Swarthmore Admissions Fellow) are now full.  Current high school seniors who would like to interview with us can now request a virtual interview with a trained alumni volunteer. Request a virtual alumni interview
