    Sign up for an interview


    Interviews are available to anyone applying for first-year admission for the fall of 2023.

    A personal interview is strongly encouraged, but not required, as part of the application process to Bowdoin. The interviewer—an admissions staff member or trained student interviewer—will guide the course of your give-and-take conversation, and there will be plenty of time for you to ask questions. You do not need to have submitted your application before you interview. Only one interview is permitted per student—and no matter how you interview, it will count as official.

    On-campus interviews

    Vaccination required: Bowdoin College requires that all visitors provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination, including the booster if eligible to receive one (at least 5 months have passed since completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series). You may present your vaccination card (digital or hard copy) at check in. 

    Virtual interviews

    Online interviews are available with an admissions staff member, senior student interviewer, or a Bowdoin alumnus/a. 

    Veterans and current members of the U.S. military

    You can request an online interview by using the Veteran Interview Request Form. Please refer to the form for deadlines.
