is the best option if you are a high school senior and
you are certain that Salisbury University is the institution you
would like to attend. In this case, students should submit their
application and all required materials (including official SAT or
ACT scores and an official high school transcript)
by November 15.
Decisions are made by December 15 and a non-refundable $400
deposit is required by February 15. If you are admitted to SU under
this option, you will need to withdraw all other college applications
as Early Decision is a “binding” agreement. If comparing financial
aid packages is an important element of a student’s decision, SU
does not encourage that student to apply through Early Decision.
However, students will be reviewed for scholarship consideration
at the time of admission and will receive information on any scholarships
is for high school seniors who submit their application
and all required materials (including official SAT or ACT scores
and an official high school transcript)
by December 1.

application materials for admission (including official SAT or ACT
scores and an official high school transcript) by a recommended
deadline of January 15.
Candidates are notified of the admission decision by March 15. Those
who are admitted have until May 1 to confirm their acceptance by
submitting a non-refundable $400 deposit. Applications
received after the January 15th deadline will be considered on a
space-available basis. The University reserves the right to close
admissions when the projected enrollment is met.
Early Admission is an admission option for academically
talented high school juniors who wish to “skip” their entire senior
year. Students who are completing their junior year of high school
may be considered for acceptance into the regular University program
provided they present evidence of outstanding academic achievement.
The requirements for admission under the Early Admission Plan include
a competitive grade point average and competitive SAT or ACT scores
with our applicant pool, rigorous courses, a positive recommendation
from the student’s high school, and a certification of eligibility
for a high school diploma. A personal interview with the SU Office
of Admissions is required.
