How Do I Receive College Brochures?

Colleges and universities recruit students by sending out brochures. Brochures may be used to provide a general overview of a school to prospective students. Brochures can be obtained through different methods, which are described in this article.

College Brochures Defined

College brochures contain information about the college or university, such as the degrees offered and the student population. Some brochures are for specific departments or programs, while others cover the entire university. Brochures typically are a mixture of informative text along with engaging pictures related to the school. Back panels normally contain contact information.

Methods of Getting Brochures

Contact the School

You may not receive brochures from the most competitive colleges unless you contact the school's admissions office by e-mail or phone. Many colleges now have brochures available online, so you may only need to visit the college's website to get a brochure. You may also be able to complete an information request on the school's website.

In addition to getting a brochure, if you call a college's admissions department, you can usually speak with an admissions counselor who can also tell you about the school's programs that match your interests, schedule a meeting for you with the admissions department and set up a campus tour.

Ask at Your High School Guidance Office

Your high school guidance counselor is trained to help you prepare for and find a college. Schools usually send information to high school guidance offices, so your counselor should be able to provide you with some brochures. Guidance counselors also know how to get information on schools whose brochures they may not have in their offices.

Visit College Fairs

A college fair is an event hosted by schools or communities to help students learn about local colleges and universities. College representatives are often available at the fair to provide you with information and answer any questions you may have.

Take a Standardized College Admissions Test

When you take standardized college admissions tests, such as the SAT, the ACT or the preliminary SAT (PSAT), the registration form gives you the chance to request information from colleges. By opting into this service, you authorize the testing service to release your contact information and certain details about you to college admissions offices. You may have the chance to provide specifics about the areas of study that interest you, sports or extracurricular activities you want to be involved in and information about your preferences regarding college size and location. This can help ensure you get brochures from schools that would most interest you.
