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 14, 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. 16.

  • **All interview slots for Fall 2018 are now full. Students who were unable to have an interview may submit a written statement with any additional information to admissions@holycross.edu**

 

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.) 

  • The alumni interview deadline of Dec. 1, 2018 has passed. Students who were unable to have an interview may submit a written statement with any additional information to admissions@holycross.edu

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.

  • The Admissions Staff has completed all interview nights for Fall 2018. Students who were unable to have an interview may submit a written statement with any additional information to admissions@holycross.edu

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.
