Step 5 - Interview

Applicants are required to complete an interview with an admissions advisor for consideration to a full-time program. The purpose of the interview is to give Gnomon an opportunity to get to know you better, as well as review school policies and the expectations of students attending Gnomon. The interview also gives applicants an opportunity to discuss their portfolio and application submission in greater detail. Interviews should be conducted once other required materials have been submitted. We are happy to schedule phone or Skype appointments for students who are unable to visit campus in person.
