Code-mixing happens due to bilingualism phenomenon and it is possible to appear in various occasions. This present study deals with exploring the employment of code-mixing in the interaction of examiner and examinee in thesis seminar. Content analysis was employed as the research design. The source of the data was from recorded utterances uttered by examiners and examinee during two thesis seminar sessions in postgraduate English program at Universitas Sumatera Utara. The data obtained were in the form of word, phrase, and clause. Based on the analysis, it was found that intra-sentential and inter-sentential code-mixing were used in the interaction. The conclusion could be drawn that the use of code – mixing in examiner-examinee interaction was aimed at avoiding misunderstanding on the questions given as well as maintaining the smoothness of the interaction.
