Meet Your Admissions Counselor!

The Simmons admission team is here to answer your questions about the admission process, our academic programs, campus life, Boston, or anything else on your mind. We can also arrange for professors, students, coaches, and others to email you about internship opportunities, social life, sports, and other special programs.

First Year Students: To find your admission counselor, please scroll down and locate your state. In some instances, your state might even be divided by region or zip code. If you are unsure about who your admission counselor is, please contact the front desk at 617-521-2051 or email ugadm@simmons.edu.

Adult and Transfer Students: We have two admission counselors who split the caseload alphabetically by last name: A through L, or M through Z. They are listed below.
