Early Decision Deadline For Hartwick Applicants is Now Nov. 15

October 29, 2012

Prospective students interested in applying Early Decision to Hartwick College now have until November 15 to do so.

"The deadline has been extended because of Hurricane Sandy," said Director of Admissions Jonathan Kent. "We want to make sure that students have enough time to complete their application."

Early Decision applications are complete once the admissions office has the finished application form (either the Hartwick Priority Application or Common Application) and an official high school transcript. You also need to make sure the Early Decision Agreement form is signed.  An essay and letter(s) of recommendation are optional. Students who apply Early Decision will be notified of Hartwick's decision no later than December 15. Students who are admitted Early Decision must submit the $400 Enrollment Deposit within two weeks of receiving their estimated financial aid package.

In addition to the application for admission, complete the Ad Altiora Achievement Award application.  This is a scholarship of up to $4,000 per year for activities outside the classroom. 

If you apply Early Decision, remember to complete the Early Decision Financial Aid Form if you intend to apply for need based aid. You will automatically be notified of your merit scholarship in your acceptance letter, possibly up to $23,000 per year.
