Important Dates & Deadlines

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.

important datesNovember 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.
