Early Action vs. Regular Decision

Should I apply Early Action or Regular Decision?
Early Action
Non-binding means that if you are admitted you are not committed to attend.
Deadline: November 1st
Notification by US Mail: On or around January 20th
Students must reply by national response date: May 1st
Regular Decision
Deadline: February 1st
Notification: On or around April 1st
Must respond by the national enrollment deadline of May 1st
Benefit of applying early action
You will receive your admission decision sooner without being required to commit.

If you are deferred during early action, your application will be reviewed again during regular decision.

This will give you an opportunity to provide additional or new information to strengthen your application.
Why wouldn't I apply early?
If you plan to re-take any standardized tests after the November 1st deadline, you may want to consider applying during the regular decision period to ensure we have your new scores before reviewing your application.

Remember that if you are denied during early action, you are not eligible to reapply during the regular decision round.
Benefit of applying regular decision
There is no admission preference given to early action applicants; thus, no disadvantage to waiting for the regular decision round. Our First-year Class will not be full after the early action application round!

Regular decision gives you the opportunity to retake standardized tests

This application plan allows you to include your first semester grades on your transcript
