Interviews for International Applicants

Harvey Mudd College has partnered with other liberal arts and sciences colleges and InitialView for a new initiative called the Liberal Arts College (LAC) Interview. The LAC Interview offers international students an opportunity to complete an optional interview as part of their application. LAC interviews are conducted by native English speakers provided by InitialView and last an average of 15 minutes. A one-time fee is required, which allows the student to send the interview to as many schools as he or she would like.

Please keep in mind that while we accept LAC interviews for your application as if they are our own, the interviewers trained and provided by InitialView are not associated with Harvey Mudd College. Do not expect your interviewer to be able to answer your questions about the College.

To sign up for an LAC interview or for additional information including frequently asked questions, visit the LAC Interview website. For students who qualify, submit requests for LAC interview fee waivers to

Interviews should be completed prior to the application deadline.

Important: Do not sign up for an LAC interview if you have already completed or plan to complete an on-campus interview, or if you are an international student living and attending high school in the United States. Please see Off-Campus Interviews for available opportunities in your area.
