Interviews

Schedule an On-Campus Interview

Freshman Interviews

On-campus freshman interviews are available from May of the applicant's junior year through December of the student's senior year in high school. Interview slots tend to fill quickly, especially during peak visit times, so if you would like to schedule an interview, we encourage you to register early by following the link above. Please keep in mind that interviews are NOT required for admission.

Alumni Interviews

First year applicants are offered the opportunity to meet and be interviewed by a Claremont McKenna alum between 1 September and 13 December.  Interviews are available to students living outside Southern California and who may not have access to on-campus interviews. These interviews are not required for admission to CMC.  Please contact the alum directly to set up your interview.  Alumni interviewers are volunteers; they will respond to you promptly, according to their schedules.  Interviews are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis and are not guaranteed.  You should contact one interviewer at a time.

Transfer Interviews

Students who plan to enter CMC as a transfer student may interview through November 1 for January admission and through April 1 for fall admission. Alumni interviews are not available for transfer applicants. Please follow the link above to schedule an interview.
