Early Decision (Binding)

Under this plan you must indicate "EARLY DECISION" on your application and submit a signed Early Decision Agreement form (PDF). Read more about Early Decision.

With the exception of the BFA in Commercial Dance, School of Performing Arts Students cannot apply using Early Decision due to timing of auditions. Commercial Dance applicants applying Early Decision must complete the in-person audition/interview by November 1, 2020.

Early Action (Non-Binding)

Under Early Action, you must indicate "EARLY ACTION" on your application. Read more about Early Action.

Applicants who do not complete their application by the Early Decision or Early Action deadline will be reviewed, without bias, under the Regular Decision process. Early Decision applicants in this pool will be released from the binding Early Decision Agreement.
