Visiting Fletcher/Interviews

  • The Fletcher School is now open to those with proof of vaccination. If you do not have proof of vaccination, the Admissions Office can provide any assistance you may need remotely/online.

  • The Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers limited on-campus tour opportunities. Any visitor on our campus will be required to follow our COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines

  • 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 Zoom-based interview program runs from September-December. To schedule an interview, please click on the below link.

    PhD program interviews may be arranged by contacting the Office of Admissions (617-627-3040 or fletcheradmissions@tufts.edu).

  • Most interviews will be conducted by current Fletcher students. In order to be eligible for a Zoom interview, you must upload a copy of your résumé (c.v.) during the registration process. 

  • Interviews should be completed at least one week before your application is submitted.

  • Evaluative interviews are generally conducted by carefully selected and trained current Fletcher students, though members of the Admissions staff also conduct interviews when needed. 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 be 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 have available a copy of your résumé or curriculum vitae.
