Learn More: Virtual Offerings

Here are our virtual offerings designed to introduce you to Carleton. Sign up here once you decide what most interests you!

Online Student Information Sessions and Q&A (~1 hour)

These Zoom sessions offer an introduction to Carleton’s academic programs, student life, and admissions process. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, hear what other prospective students are curious about, and get the perspectives of both an Admissions staff member, as well as a current student.

Live Virtual Tour

Join current students to see the places that make Carleton a community, not just a college. Sharing photos and stories, your tour guides will show you around and help you learn how campus and college resources contribute to the student experience. You’ll cover more ground than you thought possible in an hour! See you there! (Note, we recommend attending an online student information session and Q&A prior to the live virtual tour.)

Virtual Tour

Explore campus from your computer or mobile device through our newly launched virtual tour. See some of our favorite campus spots and watch videos showcasing Carleton traditions to help determine whether this might be the place for you.

Webinar Wednesday Panel Presentations (~1 hour)

These sessions will focus on particular topics in greater depth than is possible in an information session. Whether you want to meet professors, hear about post-grad career opportunities, or learn about something else entirely, we intend these to offer more detail on specific resources at Carleton.

Six Colleges

We understand that your college search this year is not what you expected. Honestly, it’s not what we expected either. Therefore, Carleton, Amherst, Bowdoin, Pomona, Swarthmore, and Williams are collaborating to host a series of virtual events so that students, families, and counselors can get updates all in one place. All events will take place at 6PM Central unless otherwise specified.


Online Interviews (~45 minutes)

Don’t be intimidated by the word interview. These are a mutual exchange of information, not an interrogation. An interview is not required, but we encourage it for high school seniors and transfer students. You’ll meet via Zoom or via phone call with either a Carleton student admissions fellow or an admissions staff member. Bring your questions and be prepared to talk about your interests; your interviewer will help guide the conversation. Interviews will be available for high school juniors in May, and can be scheduled here. In the meantime, feel free to check out some of our interview tips
