School Counselors

Counselor Appreciation Event 

School Counselors - Welcome to Southern!

You provide your students with valuable advice and encouragement, and when your students start "shopping" for colleges, you serve as a primary source of information about the institutions that interest them.  All of us here at Southern want to be a resource for you, so that you have access to the information your students need.

Our Admissions website provides detailed information and instructions regarding the admissions process, while linking you to helpful campus resources such as Financial Aid and Scholarships, Student Life, and academic programs.

Below are some resources specific to your role as School Counselors and College Advisors.  If you are not finding what you need on our website, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at 203-392-5652 or via email:

Best regards,
Alexis S. Haakonsen
Director of Admissions

Fee Waiver Request Information

Fee Waiver Codes are distributed annually to high schools that have used a number of them in the past. If you have a student who is eligible for a fee waiver, and you do not have a code, please request one by submitting the Fee Waiver Request Information form. You can expect to hear back from one of the admissions staff. Please know that the code only allows the student to submit the application; we will need an original copy of the actual fee waiver to complete his or her application for review.
