We are here to work with you during each step of the admissions process and answer any questions you may have.

Each of our Admissions Counselors is an expert on a particular geographic area or population.

High school students within the U.S. are matched with their counselor based on the state or county of their school. International high school students are matched based on the country of their school. Other groups of students including transfers, home schooled students, and Porter Scholars, all have specific counselors assigned to them.

Please scroll down to find your counselor and click on their ‘Schedule an Appointment’ link to set up a video chat or phone call. You can also email or text us! 

If you’re not sure who to contact, you can reach the Office of Admissions by emailing
