ShieldWelcome back to the Hood College Counselor Connection!

Although our semester is winding down, we are continuing to accept and evaluate transfer applications for Fall 2017 admission throughout the summer. Students are encouraged to schedule a visit at our campus in Frederick, MD to learn more about the transfer application process. Please explore the links in the sidebar for additional information about transfer-specific events and visits.

All transfer applicants who indicate that they will be enrolling as full-time students are automatically considered for renewable merit scholarships at the time of admission. This year, Hood is offering three levels of merit scholarship awards for full-time transfer students:

  • Leader’s Award – 40% of tuition

  • Trailblazer Award – 33% of tuition

  • Recognition Award – 25% of tuition

For more information about transfer admission, please contact Cheryl Banks (banks@hood.edu; 301-696-3354) or Erin Botker (botker@hood.edu; 301-696-3813). We look forward to hearing from you and your students!

entrancebanners.jpgWelcome to the April edition of the Hood College Counselor Connection. As May 1 quickly approaches, excitement is building around the Hood College Class of 2021, and we’re wishing you and your students the best of luck with registration, final exams, and college placements!

The last few months of the school year are bittersweet, as we prepare to say farewell to our graduates and welcome our new freshmen to campus. Already, more than 20 new students have accepted invitations to join our highly selective Honors Program, and many more students have decided to call Hood their home for the next four years. We are proud to announce that four students have accepted our brand-new full-tuition award, the Chair of the Board scholarship, and will be joining us in August.

We are also excited to welcome 50 high school and independent counselors to our campus this week as part of the Maryland Crab Crawl, an annual, week-long tour of 11 private colleges throughout our state. The counselors will get to take tours of each campus, meet students, attend a reception on the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, and more. If you have never visited our beautiful campus in Frederick, MD, please let us know and we will help plan your trip.
