Hello! My name is Nicole Christie, and I am the Admission Counselor responsible for transfer applications. I really enjoy assisting students through the admission process and getting to know so many unique and wonderful people.

After completing my Bachelor’s degree in International Studies, I went on to work for an international student placement organization that put me in contact with Albright College. I had such great experiences working with Albright and placing international students here that I was eager to join the Admission team. Now I have been here for eleven years and I can confirm that Albright College is a great place for students to receive a top-notch education in a caring and supportive community.

I understand that applying to colleges, managing the financial aid process, and choosing the right one can be an overwhelming experience. I am happy to help you through. If you have any questions about Albright or the application process, please feel free to contact me.
