Puget Sound accepts applications for fall and spring admission. First-year applicants for fall admission can choose from one of three application plans:
Early Decision Admission (Binding)
The deadline to apply Early Decision is Nov. 1. Candidates will be notified by December and, if admitted, are required to enroll by Jan. 15.
Students who have selected Puget Sound as their top choice for college are invited to submit an application for Early Decision admission. Applicants will be either admitted, deferred to Regular Decision review, or denied. Puget Sound's Early Decision program is binding, which means if you are admitted, you are expected to accept our offer of admission and withdraw any applications to other colleges or universities.
Early Action Admission
The deadline to apply Early Action is Nov. 1. Candidates will be notified by January.
Early Action candidates submit applications in November of their senior year of high school and will be notified of their admission decision in advance. Applicants will be either admitted, deferred to Regular Decision review, or denied. This option is not binding; admitted students have until May 1 to decide on accepting our offer of admission.
Regular Decision Admission
Regular Decision candidates should apply to Puget Sound by Jan. 15 for priority consideration. Puget Sound will begin to notify applicants of their admission decision starting by March.
Applicants will be either admitted, offered a spot on our waitlist, or denied. This option is not binding; admitted students have until May 1 to decide on accepting our offer of admission.
Applications for spring admission are accepting on a rolling basis, with priority consideration given to students to apply by Nov. 1.
