College Campus Visits
  • Seniors are allowed 2 excused absences to visit

    as part of the total number of excused absences.
  • They do NOT count against exam exemption.
  • Bring back proof of the campus visit (i.e.
    college brochure, tour guide information) and a
    note from a parent stating the days to be
  • Give documentation to Mrs. Porr

Early Action vs. Early Decision
  • Early Action -- an emerging trend in admissions
    that allows students to apply for admission to
    the college of their choice early and
  • receive a decision within a few months, well in
    advance of the normal response dates in the
    spring. Unlike Early Decision, you are
  • not committed to enroll at that particular
    institution, and you can compare offers from
    other schools before making a final decision on
    what college to attend. Note Applications are
    due much earlier for early decision requests and
    require more planning.
  • Early Decision -- a binding agreement between the
    applicant and the college that basically states
    that, if accepted, the student
  • agrees to attend the college. While you are still
    permitted to submit applications to other
    colleges before the decision, once you've
  • been accepted through early decision, you are
    asked to withdraw all your other college
    applications. Early decision is a great idea for
    students certain of their college choice.
  • Note Applications are due much earlier for early
    decision requests and require more planning.

Typical Deadlines
  • Early applications are typically in November. You
    will often hear a response by December.
  • Regular deadlines are typically in January, you
    will often hear a response by April.
  • Always double check deadlines with the college!
