Freshman Admission


Schedule an Interview

We strongly encourage all applicants to participate in our admission interview process. Interviews are required for President's Leadership Program and Honors Program scholarship consideration.

Rising high-school seniors who are applying as first-time freshmen may interview beginning June 1 after completion of junior year. Registration for interviews is available 30 days in advance. While not required for admission, the interview is considered when reviewing your application and usually improves your application. Out-of-state and international applicants can interview via Skype (we prefer to meet you in person, though!).

An interview is a great way to enhance your application for admission and get a personalized introduction to Christopher Newport. We want to meet you one-on-one to learn about you — your qualities, experiences and goals that aren't described by your transcript or test scores.

Interviews typically last 30 minutes and are a conversation that will allow you to share more about your interests and experiences. Some tips to help you prepare for your interview are available on your personalized Captain's Bridge page.

Early Decision applicants should interview by November 15, Early Action applicants by December 15 and Regular Decision applicants by February 15. Seniors can schedule and complete the interview prior to submitting their application for admission.
