Thank you for the incredible work you do for your students!
Every year, counselors, teachers, and administrators like you guide students through the exciting process of searching for their ideal college match. Through hard work, patience, and dedication, you provide invaluable support as students take these final steps towards empowerment and independence.
As your partners in this process, UChicago admissions counselors are dedicated to providing clear information, honest advice, and a respectful attitude. Together, we can demystify the application and financial aid process in order to help every student reach their full potential.
We encourage you to contact your regional admissions counselor! Please note: the officer is designated to area where the prospective student attends school—not where the student resides.
Virtual Events for Counselors
Join us for an interactive discussion with seasoned admissions staff and high school counseling colleagues. Counselor Salons are intended to mimic UChicago’s small class sizes and will offer the opportunity to connect in real time with your camera and mic on. Each session will be limited to 20 total participants to ensure everyone has an opportunity to add to the conversation. These sessions will not include a formal presentation—this really will be a discussion! Although some of the Counselor Salon events are focused around a specific theme, each session is open to all high school and CBO counselors, and you can view the full list of events below.
Letters of Recommendation Workshops
A new admissions cycle is upon us, and you may soon start receiving requests from students asking for a letter of recommendation. If you are curious as to how letters of rec are used in the admissions process, or if you’re seeking tips and tricks to make the writing process faster and smoother, please join us for a Letters of Recommendation Workshop. Both sessions will cover the same material, so please feel free to sign up for the time most convenient for you. This event is open for all high school/CBO counselors and educators.
