Rolling Admission

Castleton encourages students to apply early, to provide the best opportunity for informed decision making and financial aid. Applications are encouraged on a rolling basis and decisions for both fall and spring semesters are rolling. Castleton does not have an application deadline, yet we encourage careful attention to aid, scholarship, and enrollment deadlines.

Application Review

Our application review begins in September for spring semester enrollment (semester beginning in January) and late November for fall semester enrollment (semester beginning in the end of August). All decisions are mailed on a rolling basis. When your application and all required materials are submitted, we intend to send you notification of our decision in 7-10 business days. Some applications require further information beyond the general application. These instances include application to the following departments:

  • Art (portfolio required)
  • Music and Music Education (audition required)
  • Nursing program applicants may require additional faculty review time

Castleton’s enrollment deadline is May 1, and enrollment beyond May 1 is on a space-available basis.
