Wildfire Response and Deadline Extension

We extend our deepest sympathy to students and educators who are affected by the wildfires in California. In response, we are extending the Single-Choice Early Action application deadline for students affected by the fires to Monday November 11 at 11:59 pm.

If paying the application fee will pose a hardship, these students may request a fee waiver when applying. Fee waiver requests will be granted automatically without need for explanation or justification.

We will also extend the deadline to November 11 for letters of recommendation, transcripts and other supporting materials from secondary school officials in affected areas.

School Documents (e.g. recommendations, transcripts) for Early Action applicants

Applicants from high schools that are currently closed for any reason, can rest assured that the admissions office will make reasonable allowances for teachers and counselors who are unable to submit letters of recommendation, application forms, and transcripts by the application deadlines. This is standard policy in all circumstances.

Recommendations and transcripts should be submitted electronically through the Common Application or Coalition Application website. If necessary, teachers and counselors may also submit their recommendations and transcripts via mail or digital upload.  

Please note that applicants may be evaluated with only self-reported testing. More details are available on the standardized testing page.
