Early Action and Rolling Admission FAQs

If I apply through Early Action, when will I get my financial aid package?

Merit scholarships will be awarded at the time of acceptance. Once you've filled your FAFSA, a financial aid package will be awarded.

If I apply through Early Action, will the amount of scholarships and need-based aid I receive be affected?

No. Applying through Early Action will not affect your scholarships or need-based financial aid.

What are the possible admission decisions with Early Action?

Applicants will be accepted, deferred to rolling admission pending more information, or denied admittance. Applicants deferred to rolling admissions will be reviewed by the admissions committee for regular admissions and may be required to submit updated transcripts or other information needed to make a decision.

Is it easier to be admitted by applying through Early Action?

No. We look at many factors when reviewing the application, including transcripts, high school courses, recommendations, extracurricular activities and work experience. The same evaluation process is used for Early Action as Rolling Admission.
