Can I commit to another college?

Well, it's not illegal. You're not going to get arrested. Admissions offices know that their yield (read about that term here) will “melt” over the summer. That means the number that they accept for Early Decision (yes, even ED) and Regular Decision will decrease.

Can you commit to two schools at once?

You may have heard the term "dual enrollment," which sometimes refers to high school students who are also taking classes at a local college. However, dual enrollment can also refer to students attending two colleges. Students can opt to simultaneously take classes at a community college and a four-year university.

What happens if you commit to a college but don't go?

Many colleges and universities in the United States and elsewhere require you to put down a deposit towards your first semester's tuition. If you decline admission to the school, that money may not be returned. Check your admissions paperwork to see if the deposit is non-refundable.

Can a student apply to more than one college?

Tell students not to submit deposits to more than one college, unless they are wait-listed at their first choice and accepted at another. Consider instituting a policy of sending each student's final transcript to only one college.

What happens if you wait to commit to a college?

By waiting to commit to a college, you risk losing your place to another student who has anxiously stayed on the waitlist in hopes of someone else not taking a place. In addition, the ethical questions raised by the practice of poaching students away from one college to another are not insignificant.

Is it bad to accept more than one college admission offer?

Morally, it's a dubious action at best, in my view. You've known for months what the possibilities are, and had a good bit of time since you got your acceptances. Sending in two deposits takes away a seat from somebody else who is ready to make up their mind.

Can a student apply to more than one college early decision?

If a student applies to a college early decision, that student is agreeing to attend if accepted. Apply to early decision programs at more than one college. Many colleges now ask that counselors sign their students' early decision applications, and NACAC's guidelines bar members from signing more than one per student per application season.
