School and Independent Counselors

We highly value our relationships with school and independent counselors. Thank you for all you do to support us in identifying the right students for High Point University! 

STAY CONNECTED

We would love to stay in touch with you and keep you up to date on important happenings at High Point University and in the HPU community. Request more information by joining our counselor contact list.

If you are already receiving information and would like to update your information, please contact Erin Moran, Associate Director of Admissions, at emoran@highpoint.edu or 336-841-9722. 

SLATE.ORG

Slate.org is a free tool for school counselors, independent counselors and community-based organizations. School counselors can use Slate.org to check student statuses in the admission process and submit application-related materials directly to colleges and universities.

How does High Point University use Slate.org?

We hope Slate.org will be a useful tool for you to help your students! You are able to upload documents, track your applicant’s status and receive notice of their decisions. Slate.org will allow us to convey a student’s decision to you after a student has viewed it.

How do I register?

Visit Slate.org and click the registration link in the main toolbar. 

How do permissions work?

One member of your school will be designated to manage permissions. Click here for an overview of how to get started. If you have previously submitted documents through the Common Application, you are pre-approved for a Slate.org account.

Which documents can I upload through Slate.org?

You can upload all transcripts (excluding the final official version), mid-year grade reports, letters of recommendation and other needed materials.

Why would I use Slate.org, if my school already uses SCOIR, Naviance or another platform to submit documents electronically?

We prefer to receive documents electronically – whether through Common App, Naviance, Parchment or a similar platform. Even if you typically submit documents through one of these platforms, there may be times you find you need to submit a corrected transcript or other non-standard documents. Slate.org is simply another option and a great way to submit that information conveniently and securely. If you work at a school that does not have access to electronic document submission, Slate.org will provide this functionality.

How else may I utilize Slate.org?

Slate.org may also be used by school counselors, independent counselors, and community-based organizations to ease the burden of scheduling visits with college representatives.

 

JUNIOR SCHOLAR PROGRAM

Our Junior Scholar Program is a competitive and highly selective program and we need your help in order to identify your outstanding high school juniors! These students have strong, demonstrated interest in HPU, exceptional academic achievement, leadership and remarkable extracurricular involvement. Details about the nomination process will be sent to our counselor contacts in the spring. 

More information about the Junior Scholar Program is available here.

BOOK AWARD

The High Point University Book Award is a newly-distinguished honor for high school students who not only show great academic and social prowess, but also model an intuitive, growth mindset as well as demonstrated excellence and service in and out of the classroom. We seek nominations from counselors who believe this individual embodies stellar performance in the classroom, but also serves and wants to make a difference in the community. This is an individual who leads by example, understands the importance of academic endeavors and has a commitment for improving today’s community.

The Book Award Nomination Form is available here.

VISIT CAMPUS

We welcome you to visit campus in order to see and experience High Point University firsthand.  Upon visiting, it is our hope that you will gain a better understanding of our mission to ensure that “Every student receives an extraordinary education in an inspiring environment with caring people.”

Additionally, in the fall, spring and summer, we host Counselor Open House Events. If you are interested in learning more about these events, which are by invitation only, please reach out to Erin Moran at emoran@highpoint.edu or 336-841-9722.
