It is the primary responsibility of this counselor to recruit transfer and nontraditional students for Spalding University’s Adult-Accelerated Program (AAP).

Over the past thirty-three years, Spalding’s Adult-Accelerated Program has grown to become the “gold standard” for quality adult education. Students come from diverse backgrounds. Many are returning to school, transferring from other colleges and universities or have no former college experience. Our AAP provides all students with a learning environment that fosters intellectual, spiritual and professional development.

This counselor will provide comprehensive admission and enrollment information to prospective AAP students and other interested parties as needed. In an advisory capacity, this counselor will facilitate transcript review and evaluation for newly admitted students. As the primary point of contact for future students, this counselor must also be familiar with the financial aid process and the many student-support services available to students of Spalding University.

In addition to recruiting students, this counselor will maintain ongoing relationships with representatives from various educational institutions – including regional community and technical colleges, and other universities. This counselor may also serve as the liaison between admissions and other academic areas or department(s) within the University.
