We Are Still Here For You!

Brenau University faculty, staff and students are simply an amazing group of people. We are witnessing acts of kindness and consideration by everyone in the Brenau community on a daily basis as we navigate the ever changing environment we are all experiencing. Everyone at Brenau has stepped up, taken on additional responsibilities and completely redesigned their working lives in order to serve students and support each other. It has been a joy to witness.

We want you to know that Brenau is taking Covid-19 seriously and as such, has moved all classes online and most of our staff is working remotely. You can find the latest updates on our response to Covid-19 here.

In the admissions office, we understand that making a decision on which college to attend is stressful in the best of times and this spring has given you and your families unique challenges. Many of you are studying or working from home with no end in sight. We know that high school students miss their friends and are sad that they don’t get to participate in all the fun activities associated with the last few months of the school year. And our adult students, you are sorting out the challenges of work, life and childcare issues. Our hearts go out to all of you and we want to help make your journey through the admissions process as easy as possible so that you can focus on your future.

While we are currently working remotely and on campus events are postponed, we want to share what our admissions team is doing to best support you.

  1. Deposit deadline for high school seniors is extended to June 1
  2. Transitioning many of our events to an online format
  3. Creating new ways for you to connect with us and each other through Virtual Coffee Houses and other social media platforms
  4. Adding a virtual campus tour, student videos, blogs and enhanced web pages so that you can experience what is so special about Brenau from home
  5. Connecting you to our Financial Aid Office so you can discuss your options for funding and realize the affordability and value of investing in a Brenau education. You can contact them at 770-534-6152 or financialaid@brenau.edu.

In closing, our goal is to ensure you know that we are always here for you. We hope you will connect with us and use us as a resource as we journey through today’s new normal together.
