We hope to be the best partners we can be as we counsel students through the admission and financial aid process, so we have compiled resources that may be helpful as you work with students. 

If you have questions about Davidson or if there are other topics you’d like to see addressed on this page or in our counselor e-newsletter, please email our team at admission@davidson.edu or find your regional admission counselor. We look forward to connecting with you.
