First-Year Applicants

When to apply

First-year students may enter Antioch College in either the Fall or mid-way through the year in the Winter quarter.

For fall entry, first-year applicants have three options for applying: Early Decision I, Early Decision II or Regular Decision.  

For winter entry, applications are reviewed on a rolling basis through October 15.

Fall (August) Entry

Early Decision Plans

Apply Early Decision if you feel strongly that Antioch is your first choice and are ready to commit to attend the College if offered admission. When you apply Early Decision, you confirm that they have filed no other Early Decision applications and will withdraw any regular applications if admitted to Antioch College. We review Early Decision candidates by the same standards as all other applicants. Applicants are reminded to complete the FAFSA immediately upon submission of the application for admission.

Early Decision applicants get priority consideration for merit scholarships as we award your merit aid as soon as we notify you on admission to the College.
