What is my deadline?
Early Decision I (November 1)
If Hampden-Sydney is your first-choice school, this is the best way to apply. You'll know quickly whether or not you've been accepted and won't have to spend your senior year worrying about applying to other colleges or waiting for those acceptance letters. Early decision is a binding agreement which means you're expected to attend H-SC if you're accepted and receive an adequate financial aid package.
Early Action I (October 15) and Early Action II (December 1)
This is a good choice if you want to get the college application process finished early but not ready to make a commitment yet. You will need to make your college choice by May 1.
Regular Decision (January 15)
This is your last chance to apply to H-SC for fall admission. This is usually the most competitive round of admission at H-SC. If accepted, you have until May 1 to decide whether or not you wish to attend.
