Early Action…FAFSA…Regular Decision? What to submit, and when to send it…
Since we are less than a month from when the Application for Admission and Freshmen Scholarships is due, we thought this might be a good time to recap the Butler admission timeline.
November 1 - Early Action Deadline
This deadline brings with it many benefits for both admission and scholarship consideration:
- Early Notification Date. All admission decisions are sent on December 15.
- Scholarship Eligibility. While scholarships are available for both admission deadlines, the full amount of awards are only available for the November 1 deadline.
- Honors Program. To be eligible to apply to the Honors Program, a student must have a complete Early Action application by November 1.
February 1st- Regular Decision
While the Office of Admission does encourage students to apply by November 1, you can still submit a complete application if you miss the Early Action Deadline. Students who apply for regular decision will receive their admission shortly after February 15.
March 1st- Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
This document is not needed for admission or scholarship consideration, but is required if you are interested in applying for Grant, Loan or Federal Work Study eligibility. If the document is sent to Butler by March 1, you will be sent a complete Financial Aid Notification by March 15.
May 1st- National Candidate Reply Deadline
You can certainly accept your admission offer early and begin to register for classes/complete housing contracts; however, Butler does not require a student to submit a final enrollment decision until May 1.

They’re back…four of our bloggers from last year have returned along with two fresh new faces. Our bloggers hail from Missouri, Indiana, Ohio and Virginia. Several times a week, our six student bloggers will be sharing their experiences so that you can get a taste of what life at Butler University is really like. They each bring a unique perspective to help provide better insight into Butler University’s academic programs, student organization, residential life experiences and more!
In addition to these six student bloggers, Butler Blue 2 will be blogging about his adventures as the official mascot of Butler University. Born 3/27/2004, this 60 lb. English Bulldog is enjoying his 8th year as mascot of the Indy-based, 4,000 student, liberal arts institution. Assistant Director of Admission, Megan O’Rourke, will also be posting her thoughts and insights on the blog. Megan received her Bachelor of Arts in Journalism with a specialization in Public Relations and Advertising in 2006. She loved attending school at Butler so much that she decided to accept an admission counselor position and has been here ever since. Finally, we will be bringing you weekly updates, information and tips on our Admission blog. The Admission blog will feature important dates, helpful financial aid information and so much more.
Our bloggers provide first-hand accounts of their time at Butler and share their experiences, challenges and academic adventures through their words, photos and videos. Take a look and see for yourself…

When describing Butler University to those who are unfamiliar with our campus, students and programs, we like to say that we are a medium-sized school with all the benefits of a large university. The question we hear most often is, “What makes you so different from all the other colleges and universities out there?” Our reply, “Where do we start?”
- Butler is one university with six academic colleges and over 60 majors, so there’s plenty to choose from.
- Butler University has a 93% success rate upon graduation. (99% in the College of Education and 97% in the College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences.)
- You may have heard that we have a basketball team. In fact, the Butler men’s basketball team is one of only ten teams to compete in back-to-back national championship games.
- Historic Hinkle Fieldhouse is an Indiana landmark. Built in 1928 and featured in the movie Hoosiers, it is the sixth-oldest college basketball arena still in use.
- We are located in Indianapolis, the 12th largest city in the nation. Indy, is home to professional and amateur sports, shopping, museums, world-class restaurants and so much more.
- With over 140 student organizations and clubs on campus, there is something for everyone.
- Butler was ranked as the 2nd best university in the Regional Universities Midwest category of the 2011 U.S. News & World Report America’s Best Colleges.
- Butler was ranked as the No. 1 “Up-and-Coming” institution among Regional Universities Midwest, and one of 68 nationwide.
