The University of Mary Washington will offer early decision as an option to prospective students applying for admission. The university’s Board of Visitors approved the plan during its August 8 meeting.
Early decision is a binding agreement between a student and the university. Prospective students who apply to their first-choice institutions by the early decision deadline will receive prompt consideration of their applications. If accepted, the student commits to UMW and agrees to withdraw applications from all other schools.
“We wanted to give students another option as it relates to applying to the University of Mary Washington,” said Kimberley Buster-Williams, associate provost for enrollment management. “For many students, UMW is their first choice so early decision is a great option. This option empowers high school seniors to tailor their college application experience from day one. ”
UMW will begin accepting early decision applications immediately. Currently, the university also offers non-binding early action and regular decision options for prospective students.
The early decision application deadline is Nov. 1, early action deadline is Nov. 15 and regular admission applications are due Feb. 1. Students will be notified in early December about their acceptance under early decision.
