Interviews

We Want to Meet You!

One of the important ways we get to know you is through a one-on-one interview. While they are not required, we strongly recommend them for applicants.  As a result we offer a variety of options to fit your busy schedule. Please keep in mind that students may only interview once, and interviews are reserved for rising or current high school seniors only.

On-Campus Interviews

From May 1 until December 15, you’re invited to make an appointment to join us on campus for a one-on-one interview with an admissions counselor on any day that the Admissions Office is open for business (including some select Saturdays). For our Early Decision candidates interested in having an interview, keep in mind that they must be done by Nov. 17.

To arrange for an on-campus interview, please call the Admissions Office at least two weeks in advance at 800-442-2421.

Off-Campus Interviews

If you’re unable to make it to campus, you have two opportunities for off-campus interviews (please choose only one):

1) Interview in your area with a Holy Cross alumnus. (Due to time constraints, Early Decision candidates are not eligible for alumni interviews.) 

2) While our admissions staff is traveling around the country meeting with prospective students during the fall, we take some time to host interview nights in some of the larger cities we visit. Interviews are held on specific nights in the fall that coincide with our travel schedules.

  • Please visit the off-campus interview request form to request an interview and see this year's dates. (Please note: The Fall 2017 dates are not yet available. Please check back later this summer to view which cities we will be visiting). 

International Students

Because international students come from educational systems that are often different from that of the United States, we strongly recommend that you schedule an interview. We want to hear about your unique background and goals.  For students who are not able to travel to campus we offer Skype interviews with an admissions representative, or we may be able to offer an interview with a member of our alumni community who lives near you. For Chinese applicants who attend high school in the Chinese mainland, you can also interview using InitialView.
