Engage with Us Online

We get it - one of the best things about a campus visit is meeting new people, and that's difficult to do without visiting in person. Luckily, we're offering opportunities to engage online with our community members, including our Tartan Ambassadors and admission counselors.

Virtual Admission Counseling Sessions

We're currently offering virtual admission counseling sessions for rising/current high school seniors*. These sessions allow students approaching the time of application to ask an admission counselor questions and seek guidance about Carnegie Mellon's unique colleges/programs and the admission process. Seniors and their families can join these sessions via video or phone call. Admission counseling sessions last about 20-30 minutes and allow time for parents or families to ask questions. 

Register for a virtual counseling session!


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


Carnegie Mellon Snapshot

If you’re looking for a bite-sized information session that’s still rich in content, check out our Carnegie Mellon Snapshot webinar. The Snapshot includes a 20-minute university overview and 10-minute counselor Q&A. The information session provides essential information on our colleges and programs and our admission and financial aid processes, while the Q&A is your opportunity to ask an admission counselor any of your questions.

From the Office of Admission

We recognize that navigating the college admission process is complicated and that answers to your questions can be difficult to come by. That's why some of our experienced staff from the Office of Admission sat down for an Admission Q&A panel. They answered questions about admission and financial aid, our colleges and programs, and life as a student in Pittsburgh.
