The Most Important College
Application Dates You Need to Know

Class of 2020

Last Updated: Jul 8, 2019 6:01:00 AM




The Common Application essay prompts are available. Begin to craft your “personal statement” essay idea NOW if you haven’t yet started. You’ll need this essay for various colleges.

August 1

Common Application officially opens for fall 2020 admission – but start it NOW – the system will “roll-over” your basic information and your college list on August 1.


Begin submitting rolling admission applications. The earlier you submit, generally speaking, the better your chances for admission and the earlier you’ll receive an admission decision. Many state universities in Florida (e.g. UCF, FAU) offer rolling admission.

Oct 1

Both of the financial aid applications − CSS Profile and the FAFSA − open on October 1. We urge parents to complete these in the weeks immediately following October 1.

Oct 15

The earliest admission deadline allowed by NACAC:

·       UVA – Early Decision

·       GA Tech – Early Action

And there are likely to be others with this early date.

Nov 1 & Nov 15

These are the most popular deadlines for Early Action and Early Decision. Applying EA or ED tends to improve your admission chances – so take advantage of EA and ED when you can.

Dec 15

The date by which we want all applications submitted so we can all enjoy the holiday break!

May 1

National Decision Day – the deadline for giving a non-refundable deposit to the college you’ve decided to attend.
