Students invited to attend the Transfer Interview Day may register online to let Cal
Lutheran know they would like to attend a virtual interview. Space is limited for
this program and all available spaces may fill very quickly once registration opens.
Students are encouraged to wear attire that will give you confidence as you complete
your interview. Although virtual, students are encouraged to present themselves in
a professional manner during the interview, with good audio and video quality.
Setting up for your Interview:

if possible, to create a quiet space with little distractions. Please utilize additional
technologies such as headsets and/or peripheral microphone if you prefer.
We encourage you to turn on your camera if you are able and comfortable doing so;
however, if your device does not allow for it, or you don't feel comfortable having
your camera on, that is okay (and you will not be penalized). Our Interviews are
excited to get to know you!

The interview will take place via Zoom, and you will be emailed instructions on how
to connect once you register for your appointment. You will be able to join the Zoom

connect with you in the first few minutes to help troubleshoot any connectivity issues.
If you have not heard from your interviewers (and have not connected via Zoom) five
minutes after the scheduled start time, please call 805-493-3135 for assistance.
