Information For School Counselors
Thank you for taking the time to visit the Providence College website. As a secondary school counselor, we understand that you are working with many college-bound students who themselves are looking at a wide variety of colleges and universities. The Office of Admission at Providence College seeks to assist you in determining the right fit between each student you work with and the college or university that they will ultimately enroll at by giving you as much information as possible about PC.
These pages are designed for you and your particular needs as a secondary school counselor working with high school students.
Early Action Deadline Extension: November 8
As many high school counselors, recommenders, and students continue to experience technical issues with the Common Application, Providence College has extended our Early Action deadline to Friday, November 8.
In order to be sure that students still receive notification of their decisions by January 1, we are asking that students submit their Common Application and Providence College Writing Supplement by Friday, November 8. We are asking that supporting credentials from the high school (Secondary School Report, transcript, recommendations) follow as soon as possible.
Students will be notified via postcard when we receive their application and will also receive an e-mail message detailing their application status (complete, incomplete, and which pieces are missing) later in November. At this time, we anticipate that decision letters for all Early Action applicants will still be released by January 1.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to e-mail the admission counselor for your area or call the Office of Admission at (401) 865-2535 or (800) 721-6444 to speak with a member of the counseling staff.
Our best wishes as you continue to work with your students throughout the application process.
