About Early Action

Students applying for Early Action are among the first students considered for a wide range of generous scholarships and need-based financial assistance. 

In some cases, the Admissions Committee may defer making a final decision until it has received a report of the candidate’s midterm grades, additional scores or until a personal interview takes place.

Applicants interested in our competitive Joint Degree Programs with partner institutions are encouraged to apply by the December 1 Early Action deadline as some programs may require early Spring interviews.

Early Action is non-binding.
