Santa Clara University adds Early Decision

Jul 7, 2012

Santa Clara University

Freshman candidates to SCU’s fall class of 2013 can now choose to apply Early Decision (due 11/1), Early Action (due 11/1) or Regular Decision (due 1/7).  SCU’s ED program is binding.  In the 2012 admissions cycle, SCU accepted 57% of its 4,265 Early Action candidates.  It will be interesting to see how this new Early Decision program will affect selectivity and yield (percentage of admitted students who enroll).
