Off Campus and Alumnae Interviews

While not required for admission, an interview can give you the opportunity to discuss your interests and goals, and to learn more about Scripps and the admission process. Applicants who live farther than 150 miles from Scripps College and who are unable to travel to campus may be able to interview off-campus with an admission officer or an alumnae volunteer in their local area.

Interview Deadlines

  • Nov. 15: Early Decision I, Spring Transfer applicants
  • Dec. 15: Early Decision II, Regular Decision applicants
  • Apr. 15: Fall Transfer applicants

Off-Campus Interviews with Admission Staff

During their travels, many admission officers will conduct interviews at a local hotel or coffee shop. If you are unable to visit campus, meeting your admission counselor in your hometown is a wonderful way to make a personal connection and get your questions answered.

Interviews with Alumnae Volunteers

Getting together with an alumna in your local area can be a fantastic way to meet face-to-face with a Scripps representative and to hear about the alumna’s own college experience. Alumnae interviews are available in various geographic locations outside the Southern California area as well as internationally.

If you are interested in an alumnae interview in your area, you may contact one of our volunteers directly. Please communicate that you are a prospective Scripps student who would like an alumnae interview. You should also be ready to give the alumna some dates when you would be available to meet. All alumnae volunteers are listed on our Alumnae Interviewers (Domestic) and Alumnae Interviewers (International) webpages, by geographic region. Feel free to contact any alumna listed for your area.
