Your Admissions Counselor

At Vanderbilt, we believe in the importance of providing personal attention to each individual within the context of a high volume, highly selective admissions process. Our admissions counselors are available throughout the college search and application process. For prospective students and families, your counselor is your first contact for all questions and inquiries. Learn more about the Office of Undergraduate Admissions

Note:  Your counselor is based on the location of the high school you attend at the time of your graduation. If you attend a boarding school, select the location of that boarding school, not the location of your permanent residence. If you are a transfer applicant, your counselor is based on the location of the high school from which you graduated. 

If you are interested in the Blair School of Music and have music-related questions, contact the Blair team.

For information on admission to Vanderbilt's graduate schools and programs, visit the university's academics page.

If you do not see your area listed, please use visit our contact page to contact our office.
