Meet Our Staff

We're here to help!

The Office of Admission is here to help you through every aspect of the admission process. Since we review applicants by college, we do not have geographic territory assignments. Please feel free to reach out to any of our counselors with your questions.

Are you a secondary school counselor with questions about your applicants? Visit our Resources for College Counseling Partners page for more information.
