This page is for high school counselors that are assisting soon to be first-year university students in their search and application processes. Castleton defines first-year as students that have not completed college credit after high school graduation. Students who have received college credit before graduating from high school are still considered first-year.
If you are assisting a student that has completed credit post graduation, please view this information.
Welcome! Castleton is a special place. Like many universities, we have outstanding academic programs, state of the art facilities, and a beautiful campus. It is the people of Castleton who set us apart from the others. Our students, faculty and staff together create a vibrant community where every person can make a difference. I invite you to come experience it for yourself by setting up a visit with us in the near future.
As a counselor who assists students with their search, you can appreciate just how stressful it can be for some individuals. Our goal is to alleviate as much of that stress as possible. Your input is extremely valuable to us as we review each applicant for admission. The information we learn from you is significant and often times not evident from just looking at the "numbers". Please contact us at anytime throughout the process. We can work together in the best interest of the student. On behalf of the entire Admissions Office, we look forward to working with you and your students.

The Castleton Admissions Office reviews each applicant holistically; all application materials submitted are taken into consideration for acceptance. Our counselors conduct the initial read on applications from the territory for which they travel, allowing every opportunity to get to know applicants personally through all facets of their search process. After each counselor conducts the initial read, applicants are presented to our Admissions Committee for final decision based on students’ academic and personal achievements.
Students must submit all required materials to be considered for admission. See a list of required materials for first-year students here. Incoming student averages are shared here as a guideline, yet we welcome and admit a broad range of students. Some who fall below our averages are sometimes admitted with condition in order to ensure their success. Additionally, we often work with students who are denied admission to plan a path for their future enrollment. We encourage personalized contact in order for us to best assist each student.
Please note: Averages listed here are the minimum requirements to be considered for our Nursing Dept.
The statistics currently provided are the class of 2020, for 482 new first-year students who enrolled at Castleton in the fall 2016 term. Class of 2021 figures will be available in the fall of 2017.
