Presbyterian College announced that it will extend its Early Action Deadline for admissions from Nov. 15 to Dec. 1. This is the College’s primary deadline and is extended in order to allow potential students affected by the recent flooding to have more time to apply.
“We pass along our sympathies to all those impacted by the historic flooding throughout the state,” said Mark Fox, director of admissions. “After seeing the huge relief response from our campus community, the PC Office of Admissions was inspired to contribute to the recovery efforts as well.”
With nearly 60 percent of the student body at PC calling South Carolina home, the College’s Office of Admissions believes this two-week extension will give any student affected by the flooding the opportunity to explore attending Presbyterian College.
“We realize the flooding brought everyday life to a halt for many,” Fox added. “Lives were lost, homes were ruined, and businesses and schools were closed for prolonged periods. The college search was a distant afterthought.”
Last year Presbyterian College awarded $24 million in institutional aid. Scholarships will still be available to eligible students who complete the free application on or before Dec. 1. Students will receive a decision letter postmarked by Dec. 15.
Presbyterian College will host two Preview PC days on Oct. 31 and Nov. 21 for students interested in exploring the campus. All Preview PC events include a complimentary breakfast, admissions and financial aid welcome session, campus tour, an academic and organizations fair, complimentary lunch, and complimentary tickets to a PC home football game.
