Admissions & Financial Aid Admissions Deadlines
Early Decision - An early decision application allows students to complete the entire admission process early. This option indicates that a student has completed their college search and has decided to attend Wabash College if he is admitted. Early decision applications receive priority consideration throughout the admission process including the award of any and all applicable merit-based scholarships. Applying Early Decision also has specific instructions regarding applying for need-based financial aid. Please note - this process requires an early deposit.
Early Action - This process ensures a student’s admission status will be mailed by December 19-26. In addition to the advantage of the early notification of his admission status, a student’s application receives high priority (behind only Early Decision) as well as full consideration for all available merit-based scholarships.
Regular Application - This process applies to any application received between December 2 and January 15. By using this option, a student will receive normal admission consideration and will be considered for all available merit-based scholarships. Decision letters will be mailed February 1-5.
Final Application - This process applies to applications submitted to Wabash after January 15. Admission will be based on a student’s qualifications and the availability of space in the class. A student will receive normal consideration for all remaining merit-based scholarships if offered admission.
