+ Early Decision

For students who have decided that Villanova is their first-choice after a thorough and thoughtful college search, we offer a binding Early Decision (ED) plan.

For those admitted through Early Decision, the non-refundable deposit of $700 will be due by January 15, and all applications to other colleges and universities must be withdrawn.

For children of Villanova graduates, legacy affiliation will be given the most consideration through the Early Decision option.
