Keeping Vigil on 2018-19 Merit Scholarship Deadlines

Posted in Your College List, Class of 2023, Affordability

moneyIf you're in the hunt for merit scholarships, be sure to stay on top of explicit deadlines a school on your list might have.

In some cases, like Boston University and the University of Richmond, it's a hard deadline that you have to meet in order for you to be considered at all.  In others, like Indiana University and many other public institutions, it's a "priority" deadline that maximizes your chances of merit aid before the money runs out.  Either way, merit aid continues to be an excellent way for good students to defray the cost of an education.

college kickstart logoMany colleges and universities have begun updating their websites for the Class of 2022 (2017-18) admission cycle.  While we expect the activity to continue into the late summer, several of the changes we've observed are worth noting. 

In particular, roughly 15 schools have introduced changes to the early admission plans available to you this fall.  Notable changes include new Early Decision I options at St. John's University and Villanova, a new Early Decision II option at Northeastern and an Early Action I option at the University of Richmond.  

If you're considering early admission, be sure to check out our list as it may impact how you decide to apply this fall.   Note for our subscribers: the data has already been incorporated into the product, so all you have to do to see how it impacts your plan is re-run College Kickstart.
