Students who are prepared to make a binding commitment to Grove City College as their first choice school should apply under the Early Decision program. A student should not apply for Early Decision unless the student fully expects to accept an offer of admissions from Grove City College.
Students applying to Grove City College under the Early Decision program should not apply to any other institution through its Early Decision program. A student who has applied Early Decision agrees, upon acceptance, to withdraw applications to all other institutions and submit no additional applications. For Financial Aid information, please refer to the College Financial Aid web page. A student should not apply for Early Decision unless the student fully expects to accept an admission offer from Grove City College. Those who do not qualify for admission at Early Decision may be considered again with the Regular Decision applicant group, unless the student is denied admission.
For those students who are considering several colleges, and will not decide until hearing from all of them, or for students who are not prepared to make a commitment to Grove City at Early Decision, we recommend the Regular Decision program. Applications received after the deadline will be considered late, and if acceptable, will be placed on a waiting list.
