Meet the Admissions Counselors
Area: International, Transfer, Re-admits and Special Conditions
My name is Emily Carella and I am the admissions counselor for transfer and international students. As a new family member to the Pfeiffer University Admissions team, I would like to be the first to welcome you. It is one of my greatest joys helping students obtain their career goals and watching them grow.
As you explore options for continuing your education, I look forward to assisting you in this journey. I invite you to come tour our campus and see the wonderful opportunities our University has to offer. I am sure once you are here, you will see why Pfeiffer is the university for you!
My name is Grady Gaston, and I am the admissions counselor for Central North Carolina. I’m originally from Monroe, N.C. and attended Pfeiffer for five years completing both my BS in business administration and MBA while being very active in many extracurricular activities on campus. I’ve returned as an admissions counselor because I love the service driven values of Pfeiffer and the Village of Misenheimer. I want to help you discover Pfeiffer for yourself while also providing an easy transition from high school to college.
I hope you’ll explore how you can learn, serve and grow with us as a member of the incoming class of Pfeiffer University!
I am the admissions counselor for the western half of North Carolina. Ironically, this area is also where I grew up and thrived before finding Pfeiffer. I am a May 2012 graduate and am so excited to not only share my experience with other prospective students, but to also help each prospective student as s/he looks into becoming a part of the Pfeiffer Pfamily.
I most look forward to getting to know you and your family and special friends to help you discover how Pfeiffer best fits your wants and needs. Together, we will go through the admissions process and help you discover the fire this University sets inside each student to become student leaders for your stay and future successful leaders in whatever career avenue you choose.

Veteran Assistance Benefits
Veteran's Educational Assistance
Pfeiffer University is pleased to welcome veterans to the educational opportunities available through our institution.
Most veterans who served on active duty for more than 180 days, any part of which occurred after January 31, 1955, are generally eligible for financial support. In order to determine eligibility for educational benefits, veterans should call their local Veteran's Administration Office. Children of deceased or totally disabled veterans who are 18-26 years of age may be eligible for financial aid if death or disability of the parent was the result of service in the armed forces. Local Veteran Administration Offices can supply complete details.
Students eligible for educational benefits from the Veteran's Administration must file a statement of educational plans with the Veteran's Service Officer (VSO) in the Registrar's Office each academic year. The VSO is here to help the veterans, dependents, and service personnel receive the most efficient service in applying for their educational benefits. The VSO is not a part of the Department of Veteran's Administration and the staff is not employed by VA. Their responsibility is to provide support in applying for benefits, clarifying regulations, and certifying enrollment.
On occasion a course or a program of study may not be approved for Veteran's Educational Assistance; students anticipating benefits are urged to confer with the VSO prior to registering in order to determine eligibility. Veteran's Administration regulations limit payment for only those courses toward the declared major. Any change in your enrollment status should be reported to the VSO.
