Meet the Admissions team!

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Relations with Schools is part of a cluster of related departments, including the Financial Aid Office and Office of the Registrar. We're involved in outreach and recruitment events throughout the year.

Visit us on campus, at college fairs and online – we are always here to help.
