Admission Counseling Sessions

Admission Counseling Sessions*

An admission counseling session with the Office of Admission allows rising high school seniors** to seek guidance or ask questions of the Office of Admission. We're able to assist students with questions about Carnegie Mellon's unique colleges/programs, as well as the admission process.

We offer admission counseling sessions for rising seniors* during the summer and fall. Register here! 

Admission counseling sessions last about 20-30 minutes and allow time for parents or families to ask questions. 

*Carnegie Mellon's Office of Admission doesn't offer admission interviews nor are the admission counseling sessions evaluative. We only encourage students with specific questions about Carnegie Mellon or the admission process to register for an admission counseling session.

**Because the admission counseling session could focus on senior year coursework, recent standardized testing and a student's preparedness for applying to our specific colleges and programs in the coming months, we strongly prefer to only meet with rising seniors.

Alternatives to Admission Counseling Sessions

If you're not able to attend an admission counseling session on campus, we do offer Hometown Admission Counseling Sessions in certain cities in the fall.

Various individual schools and departments within Carnegie Mellon offer opportunities for prospective students to tour facilities, attend an information session or meet with faculty or a staff member through department tours and events.
