Early Decision vs. Regular Admissions

· Regular Admissions:  You apply by the College/Universities regular midwinter deadline. You usually hear back from them by April and you make your decision and notify the colleges by May 1st.

· Rolling admissions:  You apply and usually receive admissions within 2-6 wks. Most public universities and many private colleges use this time line.

· Early Application:  There are 2 types of early plans– one that is binding and the other is nonbinding. The college also uses regular admissions as well. The differences are as follows

· Early Action (EA):  This is NONBINDING that requires you to submit your application in early fall most likely by November 1 or 15.  The college lets you know if you have been accepted by early January, but  you have the right to wait to respond back to them by May 1.  This give  you time to compare colleges before making a decision as an EA application doesn’t commit you to enrolling if accepted.

· Early Decision (ED):  This is considered BINDING, so it’s essential that you be certain about wanting to enroll at that college.  As with early action, you submit an application in early fall.  By mid-December and January you are notified that you have been accepted or not.  By applying under the ED plan, you make a commitment to attend accepted and surrender the right to wait until May to make a decision.  Reneging on your agreement after being offered ED admission could result in other colleges refusing to admit you!!!
