Important Facts & Deadlines

Early Decision: November 1

Early Decision is the application process in which students make a commitment to a first-choice institution where they plan to enroll and may only have one Early Decision application pending at any time. Should a student who applies for financial aid not be offered an award that makes attendance possible, the student may be released from the Early Decision commitment.

Please complete the Early Decision Agreement form and mail or fax it directly to the Office of Admissions.

Also, if applying for financial aid under Early Decision please complete the Early Decision Financial Aid Application.

Regular Decision: Hartwick admits students both through Early Decision and on a rolling basis. We recommend completing your application as soon as possible because space is limited.
