We know that students are busy people and sometimes things just come up. While we expect you to attend all interviews, if you have a valid interview conflict we’ll do our best to work with you to find a solution.

Some examples of valid interview conflicts are:

  • Scheduled midterms/exams
  • Mandatory medical appointments
  • Conflicting interview times
  • Personal/family emergencies
  • Important academic/professional events
  • Time zone differences (requested time must fall within the standard 8am - 7pm ET)
  • UW interview site is different from your home campus (applies to Architecture and Architectural Engineering students only)

All interview conflicts are assessed on a case-by-case basis and may require documentation to support your case. If you think you have a valid individual interview conflict, we expect you to follow the steps below to keep us informed and determine the best course of action.

Please note that while we do our best to work with the employer to resolve your conflict, employers may not always be able to accommodate your request. If this occurs, you may be removed from further consideration for the job.
