Undergraduate Admissions

Counselor Conference

Thank you for your interest in Vanderbilt University's Counselor Conference programs. Our next programs will be hosted in April of 2015.

If you are interested in attending a future Counselor Conference event, please email us your contact information at


Counselor Conference is an invitation-only* program hosted each spring by Vanderbilt University. Designed specifically for high school counselors, the program provides the opportunity to explore our beautiful, park-like campus, to get to know Nashville, and to interact with current students, faculty, deans and key members of the admissions staff.

High school counselors are invited to attend Counselor Conference because of an existing relationship between Vanderbilt and the high school or because of our desire to get to know the high school better. We continually strive to become better educated about high schools around the globe, and to present Vanderbilt to our high school counseling colleagues, and Counselor Conference is a great way to facilitate this exchange.

*Invitations are non-transferable unless approved in advance by the Counselor Conference team.

Counselor Conference Team (L to R): Patrick Boswell, Harper Haynes, Ferrell Armstrong, Julie Chapman, Ricky Thrash, and Lindsey Holden

Tentative Dates

April 9-10, 2015 and April 16-17, 2015. Invited guests will select one of the two program offerings


Vanderbilt will accommodate all participants at a local hotel and cover all expenses associated with the program through the duration of the conference. Vanderbilt will also provide accommodations on the Wednesday prior for those who would otherwise not be able to arrive in time for conference registration on Thursday.

Please Note: 

  • Each invited counselor may attend only one program with one counselor per high school/organization represented. 
  • Invited counselors may not be confirmed for one program and remain on the waiting list for another.
