Interviews are not required for admission, but are highly encouraged. If you would like to schedule a free Skype interview, please contact Associate Director of International Recruitment, Ran Tu, at usastudy@juniata.edu.

InitialView will conduct and record an interview with you and provide it directly to us for our review.
