Visit FAQ's

Thank you for your interest in visiting Scranton! We want to ensure that our students have a positive visit experience. Below are some frequently asked questions that you may find to be helpful.

Q: Do you require an interview for admission?

A: At this time, the Office of Admissions does not require a formal interview as part of our admission process. We only offer interviews to a select group of students after they apply for admission.

We do offer prospective students and families the opportunity to schedule a personal appointment with a member of our Admissions staff. The personal appointment is non-evaluative and is perfect for students and parents who may have questions about the University or want to discuss a specific situation with regard to admission.
