In the early summer and fall, the Carnegie Mellon admission staff travels to various parts of the country to meet with prospective students. Although we strongly recommend a campus visit, we realize a trip to Pittsburgh may not be feasible. Here are a few ways to learn more about Carnegie Mellon closer to home:
- Information sessions are offered in various cities throughout the country in the early summer and fall, offering an experiential look at the university through student and faculty stories. During the hour-long session, you'll learn more about our colleges and programs, admission, financial aid and campus life. Look to see where we'll be presenting and register here!
- Hometown Interviews provide high school seniors with the opportunity to interview with a member of the admission staff. During the 30-min interview, we'll discuss Carnegie Mellon's areas of study, admission requirements and student life - as well as your educational objectives and career plans. Interviews are not required, but are encouraged. Look to see where we're offering Hometown Interviews and register here!
- Interviews with local alumni are available to high school seniors from September 1-February 1.
