Counselors

Information for Counselors

Morehouse College Office of Admission recognizes the critical role that counselors play in supporting their students and values our partnership at each point in the admission process.

At Morehouse, we appreciate everything you do to support your students as they consider applying to college. School counselors and access professionals play a key role in helping students select the college or university that is right for them.

We’re here to help you take your student’s educational dreams and turn them into reality.

Counselors are key to the admissions process

College is a big decision, and we are here to help you and your students make the application process as simple as possible. And we support your efforts by providing you with the tools and information you need to help your students decide if Morehouse College is the perfect fit for them.

Counselors and Access professionals have several resources for them to upload documents since Morehouse is now a digital-first institution when it comes to the document process for applicants. These resources include dedicated portals or partner platforms designed to streamline the submission and review of application materials, providing a more efficient and accessible admissions process for all stakeholders involved.

Use this page to get details about the admissions process, find out about events specifically for counselors, request campus tours & schools visits, and engage with our Admissions team.
