Skype is a free internet service that allows us to conduct applicant interviews online. Although a face to face, in-person interview is preferred, a Skype interview can be substituted if a family is unable to visit campus.
Download Skype free of charge onto your computer. Versions for Windows, Mac, and Linux are available.
- A camera and microphone (webcam) must be connected to your computer and operating correctly to allow the Admission Office to see and hear you. Most laptop computers have a camera and microphone included. Standard webcams can be purchased for desktop computers.
- Perform the audio test using Skype to be sure your equipment is working properly. Start Skype, then select "Echo / Sound Test Service" under Contacts, then select "Call." This will check your audio connections and be sure your equipment is set up correctly.
- Email your Skype username to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can add it to our Skype List of Contacts. Please do this at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment.

- Please add the appropriate Skype ID for the Stevenson Admission Office to your Skype List of Contacts. Your contact request will be accepted at the time of your interview.
- All appointment times are listed in our local Pacific Time Zone. To confirm the time of the appointment in the appropriate time zone from which you will be completing your interview, please consult the Time Zone Calculator.
