On Campus Interviews

    Claremont McKenna College has not yet determined when we will be able to welcome admission visitors back to campus. In the meantime, the Office of Admission is offering virtual admission interviews for first-year applicants applying for fall 2021 admission and transfer applicants applying for spring 2021 admission. 

    Please check cmc.edu and cmc.edu/admission for the most recent updates. 


    While interviews are not required, they are highly recommended. All homeschooled applicants are required to interview. Interviews for CMC are evaluative and are a part of your application. The interview allows you to tell us more about your personal background, as well as your accomplishments, talents, and goals. The interview process also provides you with a valuable opportunity to understand the CMC experience in a one-on-one setting. On campus interviews are conducted by Admission Officers or Senior Interviewers.

    First-year Interviews
    Interviews for first-year applicants are offered May through mid-December and can be completed before you submit your application for admission. Early Decision I applicants should plan to interview by mid-November. 


    If you are unable to schedule an interview by mid-December, we strongly encourage that you consider submitting the optional video response. Applicants who interview may submit the video response as well.

    Transfer Interviews
    Interviews are only offered before the transfer application deadlines and can be completed before you submit your application for admission. If you are unable to schedule an interview, we strongly encourage that you consider submitting the optional video response. Applicants who interview may submit the video response as well.
