Apply Early Decision

Prospective students, we applaud you for staying focused on your college goals given the many disruptions of 2020. We know that the ongoing impact of COVID and incidents of natural disaster have created extraordinary circumstances for many of our prospective families. In acknowledgement, we have waived our application fee. If you or your loved ones have been impacted and you anticipate needing an application extension, simply be in touch with our office and we’ll walk you through the process.

Early Decision is for students who have made Mount Holyoke their first choice.

  • If you apply Early Decision, you may apply to other colleges, but you may not apply Early Decision to any other college.
  • If you are admitted Early Decision, you must withdraw all other applications.
  • MHC has two Early Decision deadlines which can be found on the application deadlines page.
