Visiting Campus


People don't join the Hamilton community for just four years; they belong for a lifetime. For many students, membership in that enduring community begins with the personal interview. Furthermore, because the admission committee works hard to ensure "fit" with Hamilton when determining admission decisions, personal interviews are strongly encouraged. An interview will not only provide us with a strong sense of your personal strengths and interests that may not be obvious in an application, it will also give you a chance to ask questions and learn more about Hamilton in a personal setting.

Area Information

Personal interviews are conducted by admission officers or Hamilton seniors who are carefully selected and trained for this purpose. On-campus interviews are available as follows:

To schedule an interview, please call the Admission Office at (800) 843-2655.  Because our interviews are often booked weeks in advance, we encourage you to allow adequate lead time in arranging for your visit.

Off-Campus Interviews

The deadline for requesting an off-campus interview was December 15 and we are no longer able to accept new requests.  On-campus interviews are available until January 30 and may be scheduled by calling the Admission Office at (800) 843-2655.

While our preference is that you interview on campus, we understand that is not always possible. So, in the event that you are unable to make it to campus by January 30, we welcome video-interview submissions using LikeLive, a service free to Hamilton applicants.
