Summer Admission Institute
Annual Summer Institute on College Admission and School Relations
August 3 – 7, 2020
University of San Diego
In 2020 WACAC assumes the administration of College Board’s well established, signature event, the Summer Admission Institute. This year will mark the 40th Institute and a chance to celebrate the former attendees and faculty of the Institute.
New admission counselors will participate in a five-day Institute on College Admission and School Relations, as they set the foundation for a rewarding and lasting career in college admission.
This annual event is designed to help newly hired admission officers develop the skills necessary to build strong institutional partnerships and assist students in the transition to college. Enrollment professionals from a variety of institutions will serve as faculty to provide personalized instruction, while discussion-based workshops will give you an opportunity to make connections and network among peers.
Registration will be available in March 2020
The Summer Institute is limited to individuals who are actively employed as college admission counselors at WACAC or NACAC approved institutions. Participants will have two years of experience or less in college admission.
Enrollment is limited and registrants are approved on a rolling basis. Once the institute fills up, additional participants will be put on a waiting list, and they will be notified two weeks before the institute if there is space available.
Online registration closes on July 1, 2020.
