Early Action vs. Early Decision – Students have options when applying to schools

Assumption College Undergraduate

Like the idea of securing your spot in next year’s freshmen class — and knowing sooner about grants and scholarships — without the full commitment of an Early Decision application, which requires a binding deposit upon acceptance?

Assumption College offers a non-binding option — Early Action. That means apply by the November 1 deadline and you get:

  • An admissions decision by December 20
  • Optimum consideration for merit-based scholarships up to $22,000 a year
  • Freedom to explore all aspects of life at Assumption before submitting your deposit

Unlike Early Decision programs, Early Action at Assumption allows you to deposit at any point up until May 1. And if you’re not accepted for Early Action, you will still be considered for regular admissions.

Whether you’re interested in getting your bachelor’s in biology, psychology, business, education or another major, Assumption offers a no-tuition-increase guarantee that we call Assumption Assurance.

Assumption’s application is also test-score optional, meaning students can choose whether or not to include their ACT or SAT scores in their application with the same consideration either way they choose.
