Key College Application Deadlines in 2011-2012


CalendarAs the deadlines for submitting college applications draw near for the 2011-2012 year, it’s high time to start putting the finishing touches on your essays, sending off your SAT and/or ACT scores and rounding up those recommendations, if you haven’t already.

Colleges tend to be very strict with their deadlines, so you want to make sure you have everything completed and submitted by the proper date. Though many schools have similar deadlines, the dates can vary and are always subject to change, so it would be wise to check (and double-check) the applicable dates for each of the schools you plan on applying to, whether or not they are included in our list below.

Early application deadlines are right around the corner, so get out your calendars and make note of these dates! There’s nothing worse than putting in all of that effort to complete an application, only for it to be discounted because you sent it in a day or two late!
