    WHAT IS INSTANT DECISION?

    Instant decision days are opportunities for students, who meet the criteria and deadlines, to have a one-on-one interview with an admission counselor from a participating college or university. During this one-on-one interview, students will provide college-related information and answer questions. At the end of the interview, the admission counselor will either offer admission to their college or university or the admission counselor will provide the student with tips on how they can increase their chances in the regular decision application process. Register online>

    How do I participate? Register online at cheltenham.org/iddreg. Once registered, students will receive an email prior to their appointment with their time slot. The confirmation email they receive will act as your pass to attend your appointment. When students register, they should be sure to use an email address they check regularly.

    If accepted, am I required to attend? No. These are non-binding agreements. It is to the student's advantage to have this opportunity. Some colleges and universities could be handing out scholarship money during their Instant Decision Day appointments.

    What schools are conducting interviews? Schools initially booked for visits this fall include Indiana University of Pennsylvania (10/15), Shippensburg (10/21), Edinboro University (11/4), Arcadia University (11/9), Fairleigh Dickinson University (11/12) and Cheyney University (11/12). Additional institutions will be added.
