Find your Counselor

Let’s face it: the college search process can be a little intimidating. Relax! Someone at Washington College is here to help.

We have fifteen admissions counselors and six support staff members who are made available to you throughout the entire admissions process. 

Your assigned counselor may visit your high school, be in your area for a College Night, meet with you on campus during your visit, and will be the first person to read your application for admission when you’re ready to apply.
