Students applying to College of St. Joseph now have greater financial incentives to make their college decisions early. CSJ has introduced a non-binding Early Action Advantage program, designed to motivate more students to apply, accept, and commit to a Fall 2019 enrollment. Students who complete their application to CSJ by the deadline of December 15 will receive a decision by January 15 and become eligible for a number of financial benefits.
One of those benefits is a $500 Deposit Match offered to students who submit their nonrefundable deposit by February 15. The matching funds are applied toward textbooks and course materials. Early Action applicants are also eligible for Early Action Merit Scholarships in the amount of $1,500 for full-time, and $750 for part-time students.
“CSJ’s Early Action Advantage program offers students who are looking seriously at CSJ an incentive to commit sooner,” says Director of Admissions Bob Wubbenhorst. “This program is a way for students to secure their spot in the incoming class while getting a little extra help with the cost of attending. Knowing well in advance where you’ll be going to college helps students and their families plan more effectively.”
Wubbenhorst says that applying Early Action is always a good choice for students, and it helps small colleges like CSJ gauge enrollment. “It’s a great way to hear back from schools two or three months sooner than you normally would, and it comes with no real restriction on your freedom to choose where to enroll. Students are able to relax, knowing that they have already gained admission to a good college.”
Upon an early acceptance to CSJ, students have until May 1 to decide whether or not to attend. More information is available here.
