Meet the Admissions Team

We host a variety of admissions events and information sessions throughout the year to help students learn more about the college and meet our admissions team. For the safety of students, faculty, staff and the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, Bristol is currently not holding in-person tours or information sessions. But, the college’s Admissions team is here to help with a virtual alternative!

We invite you to attend an upcoming information session for an overview of the college and its admissions process. Check out our schedule here: Campus Tours and Information Sessions.

Bristol's Admissions Counselors are here to assist you in the enrollment process. We invite you to learn more about our counselors and coverage areas in the biographies below.

If you have any questions after attending a session, you're welcome to schedule a one-on-one appointment with one of our counselors! This is a great opportunity to ask questions and receive guidance specific to your intended plans for beginning at Bristol.
