Whitman College offers interviews as an optional way for you to meet one-on-one with a member of the Whitman community, discuss your academic and extra curricular interests, and ask questions to help you learn more about Whitman. Please keep in mind that interviews are not required for admission. Interviews are available to high school seniors and transfer students either on campus, off campus, or through alumni interviewers, based on availability. Applicants may interview only once.
If you're planning a visit to campus you can request an interview with one of our senior admission interns or admission officers when you fill out the visit request form. Please keep in mind that interviews are not required for admission.
