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 currently available to all rising seniors who attend high school in the United States. Students may register for an interview through our online scheduler.

Virtual interviews with trained alumni volunteers for Class of 2025 applicants will become available in Fall 2020.

For Students Attending High School Outside the U.S.

Due to capacity limitations, we are unable to accommodate interview requests from students who attend high school outside the United States at this time. However, applicants who attend high school in another country will have an opportunity to schedule an interview with a Swarthmore representative beginning in the fall. Alternatively, international students can arrange an interview with InitialView or Vericant at any time. Please note that InitialView and Vericant interviews are not Swarthmore-specific.
