The enrollment management team is on the move!

The Perkins Student Center is being renovated this summer, and the enrollment management team — admissions and financial aid — will be relocated to the Franco Building. During the move, most of the team will be working remotely. Beginning May 28 and until the team's new home is ready, one team member will be in 155 or 156 Franco from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Walk ins are welcome, but we strongly recommend you schedule an appointment (in person or via Zoom) to make sure we can best serve you.

  • To schedule an appointment with admissions, call 610-396-6060 or email [email protected].
  • To schedule an appoint with financial aid, call 610-396-6070 or email [email protected].

Please schedule your on-campus tour experience at least 24 hours in advance. Your Lion Ambassador tour guide will greet you and your tour will begin at the campus' lion shrine. If you do not schedule your tour in advance, we cannot guarantee that we can offer walk-ins a campus tour. Thank you for understanding.
