Interviewing is a great way for us to get to know you better and to help us gain insight into your personal experiences, passions and goals. Your interview at Dickinson is also an excellent opportunity for you to explore the college, get vital questions answered and enhance your application.
Interviews are offered for as many applicants and prospective students as possible but are not a required element of the application. Due to interview demand, students may only participate in one interview opportunity.
You may share an unofficial transcript and/or activities resume in your interview. Thoughtful questions about Dickinson's programs, people and opportunities are also welcomed.
Virtual interviews last approximately 35 minutes (though you should reserve 45 minutes) and are conducted by admissions counselors and trained student interviewers. Interviews should be scheduled and conducted before your application deadline.
Interviews are available to prospective students starting in April of the junior year in high school. You may schedule a virtual interview online.
Off-campus interviews are available to prospective students should be requested no later than your application deadline. On and off-campus interviews are viewed equally by the Admissions Committee.
Dickinson looks forward to sponsoring Interview Days in several locations this fall. These programs provide great opportunities to connect with admissions staff and alumni and parent volunteers. Check back for Interview Day locations and dates.
Forum is offered during select Discover Dickinson programs. For more information and to schedule in advance, call the Office of Admissions at 800-644-1773.
