Information for Counselors

Dear Colleague,

It is with a great sense of purpose that we approach the charge of helping students find the right college "fit" — a sentiment that we know you share. Working closely with you, our goal is to identify those students most likely to thrive in and contribute to the Penn community.

Benjamin Franklin founded this university, the nation's first, on the principle that all the best minds should have acess to the finest education, regardless of their families' ability to pay. Some 270+ years later, Franklin's principle, and his vision of Penn as a university committed to service to society, remains our focus.

The Penn community is remarkably dynamic — and the resources of our Philadelphia hometown are wide ranging — but in case you only have a few minutes, here are three important points:

  • At the core of Penn's Ivy League education is a rich exploration of the liberal arts and sciences alongside preprofessional studies.
  • Penn provides students with the intellectual flexibility, practical skills, and real experiences needed to thrive in an increasingly complex world.
  • Penn meets a family's demonstrated financial need without the use of loans, empowering students to graduate free of debt.

With gratitude for all that you do and best wishes for your students' success,

Regards,
Eric J. Furda C'87
Dean of Admissions
