Our staff acknowledges the human dignity of all students and families through the Jesuit ideals and counsels students using the best practices of our profession.


The Office of Admission strives to continuously improve outreach and application processing procedures that set the benchmarks for other universities.

We provide, build and maintain strong family and counselor relationships through collaborations with the greater University community while upholding the Jesuit tradition.
