your first step Submit your application to RMC

Admission is competitive, so we recommend applying under an early plan

Early Decision

If Randolph-Macon is your first choice and you’re confident you’ll attend if admitted, apply Early Decision (ED). This application plan is binding. If admitted, you agree to withdraw your applications from all other colleges and universities.

Early Action

Early Action (EA) is a non-binding application plan. This means you’re free to apply to other schools, and are under no obligation to commit to Randolph-Macon if admitted. EA offers an earlier admissions decision with more time to decide.

Regular decision

Regular Decision (RD) is a non-binding application plan, which means you’re free to apply to other schools. Choose RD if you need additional time to complete your admissions application.
