Application options at The College of Wooster:

  • Early Decision is considered binding, so, if you choose to apply under this option, you must also submit the Early Decision Agreement Form. This an idea option if you are certain Wooster is your top choice.
  • Early Action is a non-binding option that offers you an admission notification earlier in the process, and still allows you to consider other colleges and universities. Early Action applicants have until May 1 to make their final college decision.
  • Regular Decision applicants will receive an admissions decision by April 1 and have until May 1 to make their final college decision. However, note that some of Wooster’s scholarships have a January 15 application deadline.
