Early Decision (ED) is a binding application. Students who apply for ED and are accepted must attend Becker College. Students applying ED must submit all admission application credentials by November 15. ED applicants interested in applying for need-based financial aid can visit our financial aid webpage for further information about FAFSA procedures. Students accepted as ED will be notified by December 15 and receive a financial award letter by this time. Students who are not admitted as ED will have their file reviewed with the Regular Decision applicant pool; these students may be requested to submit additional paperwork (updated grades, recommendations).
Early Action (EA) is a non-binding application where students that apply by the stated deadline will receive an earlier response from the Admissions committee. If Becker College is one of the student’s top choices, they are encouraged to apply Early Action.
Early Action candidates will receive one of two responses: an offer of admission or a deferral to the regular application pool. Students who are deferred to the regular decision pool should request additional materials (updated grades, recommendations) and have them submitted to the Admissions Office.
After the priority deadlines have passed, the Office of Admissions will review applications on a rolling/space-available basis. This should be taken into consideration when applying. Becker College encourages students to apply in a timely manner, as many programs have space limitations. Once all required application documents have been received, students can expect to receive an update on their status within three weeks.
SPRING SEMESTER – Accepted students who intend to enroll for the spring semester must submit a $300 deposit within two weeks of acceptance ($400 for residential students). Deposits are refundable by written request until January 1. Because many programs fill quickly and on-campus housing demands are high, students are strongly encouraged to confirm their enrollment as soon as possible.
FALL SEMESTER – Accepted students who intend to enroll for the fall semester must submit a $300 deposit by May 1 ($400 for residential students). Deposits will still be accepted after the deadline but because many programs fill quickly and on-campus housing demands are high, students are strongly encouraged to confirm their enrollment by the stated deadline. Deposits are refundable by written request until May 1.
