No. The College of Arts and Sciences does not require, nor offer, on campus interviews. Due to the high volume of applications we receive each year, we are unable to extend an interview to every candidate and thus, in the interest of fairness and equity, interviews are not part of our Admissions process.
First-year applicants interested in a contact meeting may indicate their interest via a link within the applicant portal. They may be contacted by an alumnus/a volunteer in their local area to schedule a time to talk about Cornell. This informal conversation is not required, and is offered as an additional way for applicants to discover Cornell and ask questions. Due to time, geographic, and volunteer constraints, not all applicants will be contacted; please be assured that applications are not adversely impacted if an applicant is not contacted by an alumnus/a volunteer.
