Information Sessions


Interviews are a wonderful way to personalize your application, demonstrate your professional focus, and academic interest in our programs.

If you intend to study at the Washington DC campus, you are encouraged to schedule an optional interview. Interviews are available in September through early December and are conducted in-person or via Skype. Candidates applying to the MIPP, MAGP, or MIEF degree programs will be contacted by the Office of Admissions to schedule an interview, if needed.

If you plan to begin in Bologna, Italy (along with applicants to the Diploma, MAIA, MEPP, and MAGR degrees), the SAIS Europe Admissions Office will contact you to arrange an interview, so you are not required to self-schedule an interview.
