Request a Skype Interview (For International Applicants Only)

The Skidmore College Admissions Office is pleased to offer prospective international students* the chance to interview via Skype with a member of the Admissions team.

The calendar for first-year Skype interviews is September 15, 2017–December 20, 2017. Transfer admissions interviews are offered on a year-round basis. 

Please note that the Admissions Office will be closed December 21, 2017–January 3, 2018. 

Interviews are not required for admission, nor are Skype interviews guaranteed. We will try our best to coordinate with prospective students to arrange a Skype interview during the application process. If you are interested, please fill out the form below and we will contact you soon.


*Important Note for Applicants in China

As a result of the large number of applicants, we are unable to accommodate Skype and off-campus interview requests from applicants from greater China. We recommend that applicants from greater China, including Taiwan, participate in an interview/writing sample administered by InitialView as part of their application. InitialView will provide a recording of the interview and a copy of the writing sample for us to review.

InitialView does not rate or grade the interview or writing sample. Evaluation is done by our Admissions Office.

You may learn more about InitialView at Please arrange to have your interview and writing sample completed as early as possible. The deadline for completing the interview is January 15.



The deadline to request a first-year Skype interview has passed. If you are a transfer student, please email Eriko Fujita at to request an interview. 

If you have any questions or concerns about this process, please contact Eriko Fujita, Admissions Assistant, at or 518-580-8333.
