Undergraduate Application Process
First, decide which type of application you will complete:
Students applying for fall admission have the option to apply Early Action or Regular Decision to PAFA.
Your official decision letter will be published in the Admissions Portal. If accepted, you can confirm or decline your offer of admission by using the "Respond" button on the decision letter.
The Early Action (EA) option is for students who know PAFA is a preferred choice and would like to receive an admission decision before Regular Decision applicants. Early Action decisions are non-binding.
- Early Action applicants must submit their materials by December 1.
- If accepted, Early Action students will have until May 1 (National Undergraduate Reply Date), to confirm or decline their enrollment.
This is the standard option for applying and is non-binding. If you apply by the Scholarship Priority deadline and are accepted, you will have until May 1 to confirm or decline your enrollment.
Fall Semester Applications
PAFA will continue to review applications submitted after February 1 on a rolling basis, as space remains available. Rolling Admission Decision applicants for the Fall semester admitted after May 1 will have four (4) weeks to confirm or decline their offer of enrollment.
Spring Semester Applications
PAFA may review applications submitted after December 1 on a space-available basis for the Spring semester.
