Application Deadlines

Academic Department Application Deadlines

While we do our best to make the application and admissions process as simple as possible, we know that the decision of where and how to apply can be a complex and confusing one. In an effort to make your options clear, we have outlined below a couple of common terms that you may need to understand when choosing an application decision plan.

Early Decision: Students who apply to a school for Early Decision submit their applications before the regular deadline of, and are informed of their admissions decisions sooner (typically in January or February). Early Decision is considered to be binding, meaning that any student who applies and is admitted to a school through Early Decision is expected to enroll, withdrawing all applications to other schools. The Early Decision deadline is January 31, and is available to two types of students:

  • Applicants to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program who will complete their pre-requisite classes before the Fall term, and
  • All applicants to the Fall term Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology program

Regular, or Rolling Decision: The vast majority of students who apply to a given institution will do so through Regular Decision, and they can apply Regular Decision to as many schools as they like. RegularDecision application deadlines fall after Early Decision application deadlines, and Regular Decision selection fills the remainder of the class seats after Early Decision selection. At Kettering College, any applications received by the Early Decision deadline will be reviewed during the Early Decision selection, and may be admitted regardless of applicant type.
