Meet the Staff
At Aurora University you will work closely with your admission counselor throughout the admission process. We are here to answer questions, share with you the benefits of an AU education, and be your resource until the time you step foot on campus to begin classes.
Your admission counselor will coordinate the completion of your application to the university, inform you of important deadlines, and explain various ways to finance your education. Take a few minutes to learn more about our Transfer Admission staff!
