May 1st – National Decision Day

Decision Day

Excerpts from Peter Van Buskirk’s blog regarding the May 1st Deadline

  • “Wait until May 1 to respond to an offer of admission or financial aid.”

In order to make good decisions, you need good information and, quite often, a reasonable amount of time in which to consider your options. Toward that end, NACAC further stipulates that:

  • “Colleges that request commitments to offers of admission and/or financial assistance prior to May 1 must clearly offer you the opportunity to request (in writing) an extension until May 1. They must grant you the extension and your request may not jeopardize your status for admission and/or financial aid.”
  • “Candidates admitted under early decision programs are a recognized exception to the May 1 deadline.”
