For Parents/Guardians: Digitally Signing Your Student's Early Decision Contract

Elliot Updated by Elliot

What Is Early Decision (ED)?

Early decision (ED) is a binding agreement, where the student indicates to the college that upon acceptance they will attend that school. This is a good choice if they know the school is the number one choice. However, students may only apply to one school using this process. Because it is a binding agreement, the institution requires signatures from the student, the family, and a school counselor.
