Interviews are recommended, but not required. They are available Monday-Friday year round and on Saturdays during the fall semester. Interviews are conducted by Admissions counselors, interns and interviewers. Please allow for 45 minutes.
Seniors who wish to interview must do so by February 1 of their senior year. Juniors may interview beginning the January prior to their senior year. Transfer students must interview by April 15. Each student may interview only once. Off-campus interviews with alumni may be available on a limited basis. Contact the Admissions Office for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reservations for on-campus overnights must be made at least two weeks in advance. We cannot provide overnight accommodations during vacations, examination periods, Friday and Saturday nights, or for more than one night. Space is limited; plan ahead.
Because so many high school seniors request overnight visits, Macalester is not able to host juniors overnight. We welcome juniors for daytime visits and campus tours.
