What are Rolling Admissions?

What are Rolling Admissions?

Have you discovered that a school on your list has a rolling admission policy? It might sound a bit like the ""Wheel of Fortune"", but it can actually put the odds in your favor when it comes to getting accepted.

While many schools have a “hard” deadline for applications (meaning they won’t accept those either postmarked or received after that date), colleges with rolling admissions accept applications until they’ve filled all the spots in their freshman class.

Colleges and rolling admissions
Some schools go this route right from the start. As each application comes in, it’s reviewed. Decisions are then made on a case-by-case basis and you’ll usually hear back within 4 to 8 weeks.

However, there are some schools that accept applications under a rolling admission policy and then send out decisions all at once. Depending on whether they’ve found the students they’re looking for, they may then continue to review applications — or not.

In certain situations, schools may use rolling admissions after the normal deadline. This can happen if they haven’t yet granted admission to their targeted number of incoming students, and it could offer you an unusual second chance to get your application in. If you’re down to the wire and want to know if applying is still a possibility, call the school’s admission office. If they're still accepting applications, get yours in ASAP!
