Admissions Staff

If you believe that Salem College is the best place for YOU to shine, we encourage you to apply for admission. We are looking for young women who display strengths in academics, community involvement, extracurricular activities and special areas such as the arts or athletics.

The hours for the Admissions Office are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday by appointment only. Our phone number is 1-800-32-SALEM (1-800-327-2536). If you leave a message, it will be promptly returned.

Admissions counselors are assigned to various areas of the country (and international students, as well!). Your admissions counselor is the one assigned to the state or country in which you live. To learn more about her, click on the appropriate link below:
