Financial Aid Early Admission guidelines Many colleges have open admissions process so a student can apply anytime and if accepted begin the next course term. However, many colleges have very definite deadlines and you should check with all colleges in which you are interested as they may not be the same. Note that the admissions process often involves more than submitting an admission application, as references, writing samples, test scores, high school transcript, and other information is often required. Note that all must be received by the college before your admission file is completed. This approach is favored for those students who definitely know which college they would like to attend, 'Early Admission' allows seniors to apply to college in the fall and know whether they have been accepted before the majority of students.
