    Sign up for an interview


    Interviews are for seniors and any applicant seeking admission as a first-year student in Fall of 2022.

    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
    are conducted in Bowdoin's Admissions Office and proof of vaccination is required. Prior to arrival, interviewees (and anyone accompanying them) must provide proof of vaccination via Admissions' Health Pass by CLEAR process.

    Virtual interviews are available with the Bowdoin alumni network. Sign up for a virtual alumni interview.

    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.
