Arrange an Interview

Interviews give us an opportunity to chat with you more about your interest in Carleton. We do not require our applicants to have an interview.

Who can sign up for an interview?

We interview high school students from May of junior year through mid-January of their senior year. Transfer students have a later application deadline. As a result, they can generally interview in our office starting around the middle of March.

Given the high demand for interviews, we ask that students first register for and attend either an in-person campus visit or a virtual information session and/or online tour. After that, they can expect information via email on registering for an interview.

Carleton offers multiple options for your interview:

Don’t panic if you miss the deadline: there are plenty of students who come to Carleton without having an admissions interview.
