In the ever-evolving world of college admissions, a new admissions option has emerged in recent years that has raised completely new questions and decision options for high school seniors – the Spring Start time.

The Spring Start time admissions option has thrown a curve-ball to many students who were thinking of this more “traditional” path. What if you gained admission to your dream college, but were not able to start there until the following January? This Spring Start option begs the question – just how badly do you want to go to your dream college?
