FALL CHECKLIST - College Admissions
August & September
Early Decision: You can only apply to ONE college as early decision. This is a binding contract. If you apply, you're basically saying that if you're accepted, you will attend this university. You're "committed to attending." Do NOT select this option unless you've extensively researched and visited the university, have a secure financial aid plan and are 100% committed to attending. Deadlines are typically in November.
Early Action: Deadlines are typically in November. You'll find out if you're accepted in January and early February.
Regular Decision: Deadlines are usually in January and you'll find out your decision after they review your application.
