College application deadlines
Regardless of admission type, college applications typically open around August 1 for the following Fall semester. At this time, you’ll be able to view the current application materials and most up-to-date requirements. You can also start submitting your applications.
However, many people will spend more time working on their applications and apply closer to the deadlines. While each school may be slightly different, here are the deadlines for the most common application windows:
|Application deadline||Admission decision|
|Early decision||Early to mid-November||Mid-December|
|Early action||Early to mid-November||Mid-December|
|Regular decision||Early January to mid-February||Mid-March to early April|
|Rolling admission||Varies||4-6 weeks after submission|
