Pitzer Alumni Interview Program

ATTENTION: The Pitzer College Alumni Interview Program is in the process of being reconstructed and will be on hiatus for the 2022-2023 school year. All alumni interviewers will be contacted over the course of summer 2022, and no student interview requests will be processed. If you’d still like to interview with Pitzer College, please refer to our interview scheduling webpage.


The mission of the Pitzer Alumni Interview Program is to provide prospective students with the opportunity to interview with Pitzer alumni in close proximity to their homes.
