Your Admissions Counselor

Behind the scenes throughout the admissions process, there is a whole team of people who care about you and are working hard to ensure your application process is seamless. You'll have your own admissions counselor to help plan your campus visit and apply for admission, scholarships, and financial aid. Our Operations staff will make sure all your documents get processed quickly and efficiently. Think of us as your best resource. Helping you make a good college choice is our priority.

No SAT or ACT? No problem.

McDaniel College is proudly test-optional. Students who believe their test scores demonstrate their ability or enhance their application are welcome to submit them. Students who believe that standardized test scores do not accurately reflect the strength of their academic achievements or enhance their application for admission can choose not to submit test scores. In either case, test scores will not be used for the purposes of awarding merit scholarships.
