Interviews are one of the best ways for us to learn more about your academic goals and personal experiences. For prospective first-year students, we suggest scheduling an interview during your junior year or the summer/fall of your senior year. Mount Holyoke offers several options for the interview experience.


First-year and transfer applicants may register for an on-campus interview with a trained senior fellow. Interviews can generally be scheduled Monday-Friday and some Saturdays year-round.


If you are unable to visit campus, you can request an interview with a senior fellow via Skype or with an alumna in your region. Alternatively, you can browse options to interview with an admission counselor traveling in your area. Be sure to check back frequently, as our counselors add interviews slots throughout their travel season.
