An interview is strongly encouraged, but not required, as part of the application process.


Interviews are available to anyone applying for first-year admission for the fall of 2025. (Interviews are not available to transfer students unless you are a US veteran or military member.) The interviewer will guide the course of your give-and-take conversation, and there will be plenty of time for you to ask questions.

On Campus or Virtual

Students applying for admission in fall 2025 can request an in-person or virtual interview with a Bowdoin admissions officer or student. Registration is required.
