EARLY DECISION

Early Decision candidates receive admission and award notifications earlier than nonbinding (Early Action and Regular Decision) applicants. They pledge to enroll if they are admitted and to withdraw applications to other schools at that time, provided they receive a financial aid award that makes it possible to attend. Apply by November 15 to receive a response by early January on admission and merit scholarships and by late January on financial aid. The enrollment deposit for Early Decision is due February 1.

The enrollment deposit is due on the national college decision deadline of May 1. Applications received after January 15 will be reviewed according to space available. Transfer applications for the fall term are due June 1.

REQUIRED ITEMS FOR ADMISSION

  • The Common Application, available online at www.commonapp.org. There is no application fee at Centre.

  • The School Report completed by your guidance counselor.

  • An official transcript of your high school academic record attached to the School Report.
  • A teacher evaluation completed by someone who has taught you in a college preparatory course in your junior or senior year.
  • Centre requires either the ACT or SAT, and score reports may be sent from the respective testing services or included on a student’s high school transcript. Centre superscores both the SAT and the ACT, meaning that if you have taken either test more than once, you should submit all your scores, and we will add your highest section scores together to give you the highest possible combined score.

  • All international applicants applying to Centre for whom English is not their first language must submit official results from either the TOEFL or the IELTS exam. Our required minimum for the TOEFL is 90, and our required minimum for the IELTS is 7.0.
  • Midyear Report of grades received in courses taken during the first semester of your senior year (for Regular Decision applicants only).
