Application Deadlines

Now that you have narrowed down your choices of post-secondary institutions, it is time to start applying!  Application deadlines may occur in the fall or winter of senior year and some colleges may have different types of deadlines: early decision, early action, regular admissions, and rolling admissions. Check with the colleges on your interest list to find out their deadlines and admission requirements as these may change every year.

Types of College Applications
There are several online options for students to utilize when applying for college admissions.  Some colleges accept all options or may require a specific one. You can usually find out which options are available by working with the admission’s representative from the college.

  • School's website for their individual college application

  • The Common Application - one application may be used for multiple institutions that are members of The Common App. This application is usually longer than college-specific applications but will save time from having to complete an application for each college you want to apply to. Many member schools have supplements to the Common App, typically a question or essay that allows you to indicate why you are applying to that particular college.

For more information on any of the above application sources, follow the links to be taken to each website.

Most colleges require an official copy of a student’s high school transcript as part of the application process.
