Early Action 

This application deadline is recommended for students who do not have a clear first choice college at the point of application.

Early Action is a non-binding application deadline and allows students to receive a decision about admission and scholarship earlier in the process than a Regular Decision applicant. Students must apply by November 15 and, if admitted, have until May 1 to make a decision about where they will enroll. The nonrefundable $500 housing deposit ($300 for commuting students) is due on or before May 1.

Regular Decision  

This application deadline is recommended for students who do not have a clear first choice at the point of application and cannot meet the Early Action deadline.

Students must apply by February 1 and, if admitted, have until May 1 to make a decision about where they will enroll. The nonrefundable $500 housing deposit ($300 for commuting students) is due on or before May 1.
