Virtual Interviews

    Thank you for your interest in interviewing with Claremont McKenna College (CMC)!

    Interviews for the incoming class have concluded. Please check back starting in late Spring 2021 for interview registration for rising high school seniors.

    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 June through mid-December and should be completed before your application deadline. 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 must be completed before your application deadline. 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.

    Alumni Interviews

    Alumni interviews are no longer available for applicants applying for fall 2021. If you are unable to schedule an interview here, you can reach out to one of our alumni interviewers in your area for a virtual interview. Alumni interviews are evaluative and follow a similar format as interviews offered with admission staff. Check out of list of alumni interviewer volunteers in your area. Alumni interviews are offered September through mid-December.

    Please note that interviews are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Prospective students are limited to one interview.

    Check the calendar to the right for available interviews with senior interviewers and admission officers.
