Prospective students are encouraged to connect with SSP to learn more about our program and the application process. SSP offers a number of ways for applicants to engage with our admissions staff, including informational interviews, online chats, and graduate admissions fairs both across the U.S. and abroad.
SSP Admissions offers informational interviews with our admissions team, current students, and alumni. Students may connect via Zoom, over the phone, or by coming to campus (pending COVID-19 restrictions). All informational interviews can be scheduled online. All times are based on Washington D.C (U.S. Eastern) Time.
Interviews are not required for admission; they are for informational purposes only and have no bearing on an application or admission. Prospective students meet with members of the SSP admissions team.
