  • College admission counselors with one year of experience or less
  • Independent counselors who meet the eligibility requirements for NACAC membership
Who serves on the institute faculty?
Our well-qualified faculty members are selected from a wide range of diverse institutions throughout the Southwestern Region. They all have extensive experience in and knowledge of the areas they cover.
Are detailed agendas available?
Agendas for each track are available for download below.
What's expected of participants?
Participants are expected to arrive on time and to participate actively in all sessions. The tremendous value of the Institute comes from the variety of institutions represented and the engagement of its participants, as well as the networks established. Certificates of attendance are available only at the conclusion of the Institute.
Who can register as a commuter?
To qualify for one of the limited commuter spaces, participants must have a permanent residence within 20 miles of the TCU campus. TCU's address is 2800 S. University Dr., Fort Worth, Texas 76109. Your permanent home address must be provided on your registration form.
What are the accommodations like?
Housing Information:
All Institute participants will be staying in the suite-style residence halls. Participants will have a private bedroom (lockable), and will share a bathroom and living space with 1-3 other participants. Each suite includes a microfridge - combination microwave, refrigerator and freezer. These are college residence halls and no housekeeping services are available.

Linens, which include sheets for your full-sized bed, a pillow, one light blanket, one regular sized bath towel, one hand towel, and a washcloth, will be provided upon arrival. If you would like additional or alternative linens, it is recommended you bring your own with you to the Institute.

The apartments have free Internet (wired - cable required) and cable. However, you must bring your own computers and televisions.

Suites will be shared by persons of the same gender. They can identify a suite-mate of the same gender when registering or one can be assigned randomly.
Are single accommodations available?
No. The accommodations described above are the only option.
Can I bring my spouse or child?
We're sorry, but due to the intensive nature of the Institute and to the shared housing arrangements, accommodations for spouses and children are not possible.
Which meals are provided?
With the exception of one dinner, all meals are provided, beginning with lunch on Monday and ending with lunch on Thursday. On Tuesday or Wednesday evening, you'll have the chance to explore Fort Worth and dine on your own.
How do I hold a space for a future hire?
Due to limited space, we recommend that institutions who anticipate hiring new staff in time for the Institute reserve space in the name of the principal or director of admissions. Institutions are responsible for changing the name of the participant before the registration deadline (July 2, 2012) and are subject to the cancellation policy described below.
