Don’t miss Transylvania’s Dec. 1 early action deadline

It’s the decision of a lifetime. If you choose to pursue your path at Transylvania University, a world of possibilities opens up to you … and now is the time to get your application in!

Wednesday, Dec. 1, is Transy’s final early action deadline if you want priority consideration for both admission and scholarships.

Unlike Early Decision deadlines at other colleges, submitting your application by our Early Action deadlines is not a binding contract requiring you to enroll at Transylvania if admitted. It merely ensures that you will receive first consideration for admission and consideration for available scholarships.

Dec. 1 is also the deadline for Transy’s Premier Scholarship program.

Students who wish to be considered for the Transylvania’s Premier Scholarship Program must apply by Dec. 1.  

These competitive awards are based on information submitted on the application, including test scores, grades, extracurricular and community involvement, recommendations and the admissions essay.

The Office of Admissions will notify finalists for the Premier Scholarship awards of their selection by mail. Finalists will be required to complete an on-campus interview later in December or January.

Won’t have your application together by Dec. 1?  No worries. Students who apply by the March 1 regular decision deadline will be considered for all merit-based Transylvania scholarships except the Premier Scholarship awards.
