Early college application deadlines due in November

student applies for college

High school seniors have multiple deadlines to choose from when applying to colleges. Early decision deadlines are usually due in November and are binding. Early action applications are due at the same time but aren’t binding. Regular decision deadlines are as early as January 1 and students find out in late March or early April. Rolling admissions applications are evaluated as they’re received and stop once the incoming class is filled.
