Now that you have decided to apply to PC, it is important to select the admissions plan that meets your interests.

Early Decision is a binding admissions plan and is a great option if PC is your top college choice. If accepted, you agree to withdraw all other applications and commit to attending PC by submitting the $400 non-refundable deposit by January 15.

If PC is one of your top college choices, but you are not ready to commit, you will want to meet our Early Action deadline. This non-binding admissions plan will allow you to receive an early admissions decision without the obligation to commit early. Your non-refundable enrollment deposit is due by May 1. Meeting this application deadline qualifies you for all merit scholarships, including the Griffith Scholarship.

If you find PC later in the process, you have no need to worry. You still have time to apply by the Regular Decision Priority Date, which also qualifies you for consideration for the remaining merit-based and music scholarships.

Priority Date
Early Decision  Nov 1  Dec 1  Jan 15
Early Action  Nov 15  Dec 15  May 1
Regular Decision  Feb 1  Mar 15  May 1

Note: Space in the incoming class becomes limited for candidates submitting applications after February 1. We then base admissions decisions on available space as well as academic performance and talents.
