Self-Guided Tour (In-Person)

We're offering in-person, self-guided tours of campus. This includes audio tour stops recorded by our tour guides at locations across campus.

Schedule an Interview

We're currently offering interviews to high school seniors and other students who plan to apply as first year students for entry in Fall 2022. You have two interview options: an Admission Office interview or an Alumni Interview. An Admission Office interview is conducted via Zoom by an Admission Officer, or one of our twelve trained senior interviewers. These interviews are typically available Monday through Friday (including some evenings and some Saturday times, too). An Alumni interview offers more scheduling flexibility, additional video platform options, and the opportunity to connect with someone in your geographic area.

We value both of these interview options equally in our process, so please choose the option that works best for you. And please note, you are only able to have one admission interview.

Upcoming Events

Come with your questions or come just to listen and join our conversation. Parents, guardians, friends, and educators are all welcome.

Visit a Class

Take the opportunity to experience a Haverford classroom via Zoom! Below is a sampling of Haverford courses currently being taught in ways that are conducive to visitors.

If you would like to visit a class:

  1. Please be sure to email the professor in advance. While each of these faculty is open to visitors, there may be days the class isn't being held or there may be other reasons why visiting doesn't work on a specific day. The professor will provide the zoom link for the class once they hear from you.
  2. Please be sure to come into the meeting at the very beginning of the class. If you are not able to stay for the whole class, please make sure that this is okay with the professor.
  3. Feel free to participate in the class as you are able! Our faculty and students are warm and welcoming, and will be excited you are there.
