Types of Interviews
If you’re able to visit campus, we encourage you to sign up for an interview. While on campus, you can also register for a campus tour and information session. And, because you’re visiting from so far, if there’s anything we can do to make your visit more productive (meeting with a faculty member, a coach, or sitting in on a class), let us know.
On-campus interviews last about 20 to 30 minutes with an admissions representative and are available from May to December.
We understand that not every prospective student has the ability to visit campus, so we come to you! Our off-campus options are conducted and treated the same as our on-campus options. Rochester Admissions representatives travel all over the world and nearly 500 Rochester alumni are scattered throughout the globe.
They are held in public venues such as local coffee shops or hotel lobbies. Alumni interviews are offered November 1–January 31. Prior registration is required.
If a face-to-face on-campus or off-campus interview isn’t possible for you, we also offer Skype or phone interviews with an admissions counselor, alumnus/a, or current student.
International Skype Interviews
If you are an international student and admissions staff or alumni are unable to visit your area, you may request a Skype Interview using the button below.
Third-Party Interview Providers
The University of Rochester partners with several third-party organizations like Vericant and InitialView to provide additional interviewing opportunities. These interviews are primarily meant for applicants who are non-native English speakers or living outside the United States.
Interviews for transfer applicants are conducted all year long. If you want to enroll for the fall semester, interview in the spring. If you want to enroll in the spring, interview in the summer or fall. You can sign up for any of the on- or off-campus interview options listed above. There are also on-campus interviews reserved only for transfers on Transfer Visit Days as well as other transfer-only days from January to May.
Can’t make it to an on- or off-campus event? Contact us and we will do our best to accommodate a phone or video interview based on your schedule.
