- Online Information Sessions
- We invite you to join us for an online information session about The Fletcher School.

Online information sessions are generally led by admissions officers and current students, and participants have the opportunity to ask questions

- Skype Interviews
An admissions interview is a valuable way for you to share information about yourself and to learn how The Fletcher School will meet your academic and professional goals. The evaluative interview is a recommended, but not a required, part of the admissions process. PhD applicants, in particular, are encouraged to schedule an on-campus interview.
Optional evaluative interviews via Skype are available on a limited first-come, first-served basis. Skype interviews are intended for applicants who plan to enroll in January or September of the coming year, who are outside the Boston area, and who are unable to travel to campus for an interview. Most interviews will be conducted by current Fletcher students. In order to be eligible for a Skype interview, you must upload a copy of your résumé (c.v.) and provide your Skype user name during the registration process.
Skype interviews are offered mid-September through mid-December. Please note that slots fill up quickly, particular during November and December. The interview schedule is available starting in mid-August.
See our interview calendar for more details and to schedule an interview.

We offer occasional on-line chats to allow applicants to ask direct questions about the application process and the school in an interactive setting. To be informed of future chats, please submit your contact information.
