Which Colleges Have Early Action?

What is early action for college? Early action is similar to early decision but it is important to know the difference.

So what is the difference between early action and early decision?

With early decision, you apply to only ONE college and agree to enroll if you are accepted and awarded adequate financial aid. Early decision is a binding agreement.

Early action is similar, but it is a non-binding agreement. This means that you can apply for early action with multiple schools. Normally, you will have until late spring to inform the college about your decision to attend or not to attend.

Which colleges offer early action? Here is the list. Contact each school directly for complete details. Also be aware this may not be a complete and comprehensive list.
