We are coming to visit! From New York to Texas and Los Angeles, to China and the Middle East, representatives from the University of Rochester will be traveling to an area near YOU! Our parents and alumni also host a variety of events across the country. Off-campus events are great opportunities for prospective students and families to learn more about Rochester without traveling far from home. We hope to see you at one or more of the following events:

  • Interviews
  • High school visits
  • Information sessions
  • College fairs

Find an event in your area!


From July to January, we meet with prospective high school seniors and transfer students in one-on-one interviews. An interview is a chance for us to get to know you better and for you to ask us about Rochester! If we are not traveling to an area near you, you may request an interview with an alumnus/a through MyROC or contact your admissions counselor to schedule a Skype or phone interview.

International students who live outside the areas we are visiting may request a Skype interview through their MyROC. Please check back soon for more information. The University of Rochester also accepts the CIEE Applicant Interview (CAI). Interested students from mainland China, Taiwan, and South Korea can learn more about requesting an interview through CIEE:

*Interviews for transfer applicants should be completed within a week of their application being completed. If an off-campus interview is not available, please call us at (888) 822-2256 to request an on-campus, phone or Skype interview.

Schedule your off-campus interview!

Information Sessions

While we would love for you to visit campus, we recognize that traveling to Rochester during the academic year may not be possible for you and your family. An information session in your area is another way to learn more about Rochester!

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet with your admissions counselor, alumni, and Rochester parents.
  • Learn about Rochester’s open curriculum and research opportunities.
  • Ask questions about the admissions and scholarship review process.

Joint Information Sessions

The University of Rochester has partnered with New York University and Brandeis University to host joint information sessions for prospective students interested in learning more about any or all of these universities. We are scheduled to host these events in Austin, San Antonio, El Paso, and New Orleans this September. Stay tuned for details regarding dates and registration!
