Policy statement

Early action (EA) is a type of early admission. The Early Action program opens in June and allows students to self-report their academic credentials for early notification of their admission decision, as well as to submit the NWU financial aid form and gain early access to their NWU financial aid award. Early Action is non-binding as students have until May 1 to accept their admission offer. Available until October 15th.

 

Rolling admission is a type of admission for students who want to be notified soon after submitting the high school transcripts and ACT/SAT scores. The university will then review the application and notify the applicant of their decision within a few weeks from submission. Rolling admission is non-binding as students have until May 1 to accept their admission offer. Rolling admission opens in June and there is no formal closing date.
