Decision Day is the
deadline to let colleges know you are going to attend. On that day, you'll be expected to
pay your enrollment deposit to secure your spot at the college of your choice.
Decision Day and COVID-19
Every year, National Decision Day is today, May 1st. However, due to COVID-19, some colleges have changed their Decision Day deadlines to June 1, 2020 or later!
Here is the list of Maryland colleges who have changed their deadline
- Goucher College
- Hood College
- Loyola University
- McDaniel College

Be sure to contact a college to confirm their Decision Day deadline.
For a complete list of colleges who have pushed their Decision Day deadlines so far,
BEFORE making a decision:
1. Email CollegeTracks your Financial Aid Award Letters from each college you were accepted to.
Colleges will mail your letters OR you will have to access
them through your portal for each college
2. Schedule your Cost of Attendance Meeting with Ms. Rula to estimate the
costs of each school and compare the results.
3. If you are eligible for Maryland Grants contact your colleges and request more time to confirm your enrollment as awards will not be available until after June 1.
