Help build Duke's next class

Become an Alumni Admissions Interviewer

Every year, thousands of high school students apply to Duke, and alumni admissions interviewers play the critical role of serving as a Blue Devil ambassador. As an interviewer, you share your knowledge of your alma mater while allowing the student to share their story, putting a face to their application for the admissions team. There are over 200 cities and regions around the world where alumni interviewers support the voluntary interview process, and the DAA is always looking for alumni to help us build the next class of Blue Devils.

To protect the health of our volunteers and prospective students, all interviews for applicants to the Class of 2026 will be conducted virtually.
