Admissions Interview

While not required for admission, an interview is a great way for you to learn more about Scripps and to help us learn more about you. Interviews last about 30 minutes and are conducted by a Scripps alum, admission counselor, or current student.

Interview Deadlines

Interview Options

All interview options are weighted the same in the admission process. Due to high demand, some interview options fill up quickly. Please only interview once. At this time, interviews are no longer offered as we are currently at capacity.

Interviews are completely optional and are not a determining factor in our admission process.

We are currently at capacity for virtual interviews conducted by a Scripps Admission Counselor or Senior Admission Ambassador.
