If you get an interview email from the school you applied, can you choose the date for the interview?

Hi guys. So I'm playing the waiting game here and also am practicing some interview questions on my own. I was wondering as I wrote in the title, do I get the chance to choose which dates I'm comfortable for the interview if I get to do the interview? Does anyone know the answer to this?

The process varies from each school for sure but from my past experience I had two interviews and i was sent a limited time slot to choose from so i did get to choose, but it's likely within the same week or couple of days.

In my case, the one school that has asked to interview me so far said, 'we'd like to interview you on this specific date at this specific time, are you available?'
If my work had not approved that time and date for me, I would have proposed an alternative to them, but I was able to accept their proposed date and time, so can't be sure how flexible the school would be.

in my case, the proposed interview date was 2.5 weeks from the date they emailed, so plenty of advance notice.
