Each year at Neumont University, we offer prospective students three separate deadlines by which to apply for admission.
- The Early Admission Deadline is typically in late October or early November.
- It's followed by the General Admission Deadline in late January.
- Finally the Late Admission Deadline is typically in late March.
- Read more about our deadlines and criteria for admission, here.
Today, let's focus on the Early Admission Deadline that is coming up on Monday, October 24, 2016. This deadline is nearly a full calendar year before any applicants will begin classes on our campus. So why is the deadline so early? Spreading out the deadlines helps us evaluate each candidate individually for admission, and it helps us award merit scholarships.
Wait, scholarships? Yeah, let's talk about scholarships. At Neumont, scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. So if you apply by the Early Admission Deadline this coming Monday, it's more likely you'll be awarded a merit scholarship than if you wait until the Late Admission Deadline. Keep in mind, no separate scholarship application is needed. Every applicant is evaluated for merit scholarships based on academic achievement.
Now, let's say you think your ACT and/or SAT scores are not a true measure of your success, or you haven't even taken them yet! Either way, it's still in your best interest to complete your application for Early Admission, and then submit your (new) scores as soon as they become available for an immediate reevaluation for scholarship eligibility.
Furthermore, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) has also changed this year, so you can file now for 2017-2018 aid using your parents 2015 tax information at www.fafsa.gov. So this year, we're offering priority financial aid processing to accepted students who complete an Enrollment Agreement, submit a Financial Aid Application, and submit a FAFSA early. Accepted students who complete these steps will receive an Award Letter Estimate (a guide to costs and funding for the first academic year at Neumont) on or before March 1.
Applying early means you could know exactly where you're going to college and how much it will cost BEFORE the Late Admission Deadline even arrives. So if you want the best chance at scholarships and you want to be fully prepared for the first day of class, then completing your application now is the best choice.
