Application and Information
Students may apply to Juniata using the Common Application any time after completion of their junior year in secondary school. A complete secondary school transcript indicating courses and grades (including senior year courses and grades to date) must be sent from the applicant's guidance office along with SAT-I and/or ACT scores, an essay, and a letter of recommendation.
Candidates for freshman admission can choose from three application options - Early Decision I, Early Decision II, and Regular Decision:
- Early Decision I – Application Deadline November 15. The Early Decision (ED I) option is available for those students who know that Juniata is their number one choice. Early Decision is a binding agreement; applicants agree to apply ED I only to Juniata and to enroll if offered admission. ED I students receive admission notification by December 15th. Accepted ED I students will receive financial aid notification by late January. A non-refundable $400 deposit is required by February 15th. Please refer to the Early Decision Information section of the Common Application when deciding whether or not to apply as an ED I candidate.
- Early Decision II – Application Deadline January 1. The Early Decision II (ED II) option is available for those students who decide that Juniata is their top choice after November 15th. Once all required materials are received, ED II applicants will receive an admission decision by February 15th. If applying for need-based aid, students must complete the FAFSA by February 15th. The ED II option is a binding agreement and requires the student to submit a non-refundable $400 deposit two weeks after receipt of a financial planning award. Please refer to the Early Decision Information section of the Common Application when deciding whether or not to apply as an ED II candidate.
- Regular Decision – Application Deadline February 15*. Regular Decision Candidates are encouraged to apply in the fall. Students who apply before November 1 may receive an admission decision by mid-December. Students applying after January 1 will receive a decision 4 to 6 weeks after the application is complete. Students who wish to be considered for all additional competitive scholarships should have their application submitted no later than January 1. Students accepted as a Regular Decision candidate must submit a non-refundable $400 deposit by May 1 to reserve a space in the entering class.
Note: Students who wish to be considered for all additional competitive scholarships should have their application submitted no later than January 1.
