Early Action

Early Action allows students who have a strong interest in the University to apply early and receive a quick response. Completed applications with supporting materials must be postmarked by November 15. All notification letters will be mailed on December 5. Early Action students who are admitted and indicate an interest in scholarships will be considered prior to Regular Decision candidates. (Please note that early action is non-binding).

Regular Decision

Regular Decision enables students to apply at any time. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning immediately after Early Action reviews (mid-December) and continuing as long as space in the class is available. Notification letters will typically be mailed within two weeks of completion unless additional information is needed.
