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.

Interviewing as a First Year Applicant

Interview requests for students attending high school outside of the United States are closed due to capacity limitations. Please note that interviews are optional.

International students can arrange an interview with InitialView or Vericant at any time. Please note that InitialView and Vericant interviews are not Swarthmore-specific.
