Thank you for your interest in applying to Covenant College. Throughout the academic year, Covenant College has two specific entry points for admission: early action and regular decision.
- Early action is for students who wish to receive an early, non-binding admissions decision. The application deadline for early action is November 15, and applicants will receive an admissions decision by December 15. Early action students may be accepted for admission, denied admission, or be deferred to the regular decision admission notification date of March 1. Students accepted through the the early action admissions process have until May 1 to make their final enrollment decision.
- Regular decision is for students who submit their application after November 15 or who did not receive a decision in the early action review process. The application deadline for regular decision is February 1 and applicants who apply through this process will receive a decision by March 1. Students who apply through the regular decision process may be accepted for admission, denied admission, or waitlisted. Students who are admitted through the regular decision process must inform the College of their enrollment decision by May 1. Students placed on the waiting list have the possibility of being admitted in the summer.
After March 1, the admissions office will begin accepting applications on a rolling basis and priority for admission will be given to students who applied to Covenant College by the February 1 regular decision date.
Applications for admission and scholarship applications are due to Covenant College by the application deadline dates. As you move through the application process, our admissions counselors will be in close contact regarding missing pieces, upcoming deadlines, and any other pertinent information. If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact the admissions office.
