Deferred Acceptance Deferred acceptance means the college is postponing the admissions decision. Deferred students can often improve their chances for admission by providing additional informa- tion (evidence of improved grades, higher test scores, etc.). Early Action / Early Decision Students who apply Early Action or Early Decision submit their application for admission early in their senior year. These students then receive early notification of the college’s decision. Students applying Early Decision make a commit- ment to enroll if they’re accepted. Early Action is not binding. Open Admissions Colleges with an Open Admissions policy accept virtually all high school graduates until spaces are filled. Rolling Admission Colleges with rolling admission make decisions on applications as they receive them. Applicants are usually notified of the college’s decision in four to eight weeks. Waitlisted Waitlisted students may be reconsidered if enough accepted students don’t enroll. Waitlisted students can improve their chances of acceptance by providing additional information (higher test scores, a letter of recommendation, etc.). Understand Admission Terms 11
