Berry College offers three options for undergraduate students to apply for
admission - Early Decision (ED), Early Action (EA) and Regular Decision

their first choice and are prepared to make a binding commitment to attend
Berry if offered admission. Early Decision I and Early Decision II require
submission of the CSS/Financial

college or university. For more information about the CSS/Financial Aid
PROFILE, please see our FAQ page.

Action is most appropriate for candidates applying in the fall.
Regular Decision (RD) represents a non-binding option where applicants
will be notified of their admission decision beginning in mid-February. Regular
Decision is most appropriate for candidates applying in the spring.
