Yes. Prospective students are highly encouraged to visit the School, sit in on classes, tour the campus, and meet with current students. Small group information sessions for prospective applicants conducted by current students are regularly scheduled on most Mondays and Fridays during the fall and spring semesters. Please check our schedule to ensure an information session is scheduled on the day you want to visit.
A Fletcher Information Session includes a tour of the Fletcher complex. We do not offer tours of Tufts University, though it is easy to make arrangements for a tour with the undergraduate Office of Admissions.
The interview is highly recommended, but is not a required component of the admissions process. Personal evaluative interviews are an excellent way for applicants to share information and to learn how The Fletcher School will help them meet their academic and professional goals.
The on-campus interview program runs from September-December. To schedule an interview, please click on the below link.

On-campus PhD program interviews may be arranged by contacting the Office of Admissions (+1 617-627-3040 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Because only a limited number of interviews can be accommodated each day, you should try to schedule your interview well in advance of the date you wish to visit.
We offer Skype interviews on a limited, first-come first-served basis for candidates who are unable to visit Fletcher in person. 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. You can schedule an interview and see further details here.
Interviews should be completed one week before your application is submitted. In person interviews are generally offered from September to December.
Evaluative interviews are generally conducted by carefully selected and trained current Fletcher students, though members of the Admissions staff also conduct interviews when there is a large number of visiting applicants. The interviewer will ask about your goals and ability to succeed at Fletcher and the interviewer's notes will become part of your application file.
We recommend that you research The Fletcher School and its programs prior to the interview. Please come prepared to discuss your past experiences, your career goals, and why you are interested in the Fletcher program. Please dress as you would for any job interview and bring a copy of your résumé or curriculum vitae.
