Northwestern Comes to You

Information sessions in your neck of the woods.

Representatives from Northwestern University's Office of Undergraduate Admission travel to locations across the country and the world to provide interested students and their parents an opportunity to learn more about Northwestern.

Additionally, our admission officers travel with representatives from other leading universities. Northwestern has partnered with Dartmouth College, Princeton University, the University of California, Berkeley and Vanderbilt University as part of the Coast to Coast College Tour. At each of these joint travel events, representatives will provide a brief overview of each institution, general information on admission and financial aid policies and a chance to speak informally with admission representatives.

Domestic travel

Northwestern hosts off-campus information sessions in the spring and fall months in major metropolitan areas. Representatives from the Office of Undergraduate Admission will provide you with an overview of Northwestern University, admission procedures and financial aid, allowing time for questions at the end.

International travel

Representatives from Northwestern University's Office of Undergraduate Admission travel around the world in the spring and fall months to meet with students and families at public information sessions, high schools, and college fairs.  

In Fall 2015, Northwestern will travel to countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Central America, Europe and Oceania, as well as cities in Canada and Mexico. See details for these international visits.

Admission interviews

Admission interviews are not required and are an optional addition to your application for admission. Applicants who are unable or choose not to interview are not at a disadvantage in the admission process.

All interviews are conducted off-campus by Northwestern's regional Alumni Admission Councils (AAC), situated through the United States and abroad. These interviews provide applicants with an opportunity to learn more about the Northwestern student experience through an alumna/us. Given the limited availability of alumni interviews, only a very small percentage of our applicants are ultimately able to schedule an appointment.

  • Early Decision Applicants may contact our office beginning in mid-September to find out if an AAC member in their area is available for an interview. Email
  • Once they have submitted their applications, Regular Decision Applicants will be notified via email if a nearby AAC is offering admission interviews. Interviews are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
