Why Early Decision?

  • It’s a stress reliever! With admission acceptance letters mailed in December, you can kick back and enjoy the rest of your senior year knowing that the college decision-making process is finished.
  • You can engage with K as a “Future Hornet.” Visit campus and meet with students and faculty knowing that the people you meet will be part of your community for the next four years. If you’re looking for a spot on one of K’s athletic teams, get a head start by communicating with coaching staff as an admitted student and show them your commitment to K.

The Early Decision option is open to all incoming first-year students, including international students. Early Decision is a binding program—if you’re admitted, you are committing to attend Kalamazoo College.

The first Early Decision deadline is right around the corner. Visit our website to learn more about how to apply through the Common App by Nov. 1. If you want more time to include mid-year grades, you can apply as an Early Decision II candidate by Feb. 1.
