Early Consideration 
Applying for early consideration gives you more time to plan for the transition to college. You can still apply to other programs. However, if you are admitted to Next Steps, we ask you to 1) withdraw all other applications to other universities and colleges, and 2) not submit any more applications at that point.
  • The early consideration application deadline is November 15, 2021.
  • Early consideration admission decisions will be announced by January 15, 2022.


Regular Consideration 
  • The regular consideration application deadline has been extended to January 31, 2022.
  • Regular admission decisions will be announced by May 30, 2022.
*  We strongly encourage applicants to submit materials in advance of the above deadlines.
  • Applicants may still be considered after deadlines have passed if there is available space.
  • When our incoming class is full, late applicants may request their materials be considered for the next year.
