*Due to University policies regarding COVID-19, Undergraduate Admissions is not receiving paper mail at this time. If you are sending an official or time-sensitive document, we encourage you to email it to undergrad-admissions@duke.edu.

Each admissions officer is responsible for a region of the country or world. If you have a specific question for your regional officer, please feel free to contact them. Your regional officer is based on the location of the school that you attend, not your home address. For transfer students, your regional officer is based on the location of the high school from which you graduated. Duke does not consider personal contact with regional admissions officers as a factor when making admissions decisions. If you’d like to receive information about Duke click here.
