Senior Admission Terms
Important Admissions Terms
Early Decision Plans:
- Students can apply to only one Early Decision college.
- If the college accepts the student and offers enough financial aid, the student must go to that college. That is why these plans are referred to as “binding.”
- Some colleges have two early deadlines, Early Decision I and Early Decision II. They both work the same way, but the second deadline gives you more time to decide whether to apply early.
- Although students may apply to additional colleges through the regular admission process, they must withdraw all other applications if they are accepted by this college.
Early Action Plans:
- Students may apply to more than one early action college.
- Some colleges also offer an Early Action I and Early Action II option.
- If students are accepted, they can say yes right away, wait until spring to decide, or decline the offer.
- Early action plans enable families to compare financial aid packages in the spring.
- While Rolling Admission has no set deadlines, and students can apply throughout the year, the college will review applications and fill spots on a first-come, first-served basis.
- The college has a standard and specific deadline and a standard notification period.
