International Student Application Checklist

All application materials must be in English and submitted through Common Application or directly to Muhlenberg at international@muhlenberg.edu. Your admissions application will be complete and ready for review once you have completed and submitted all items on our checklist:

International Student Application Checklist

  • Early Decision I - November 15
  • Early Decision II - February 1
  • Regular Decision - February 1

Early Decision vs Regular Decision:

The best reason to apply Early Decision is this: You have found a college that is an absolute first choice. You know that it’s the right fit. If Muhlenberg is that college, then please apply Early Decision.

If you are applying Early Decision, then you are required to submit the Early Decision Agreement Form found on Common Application along with your other materials. Please note that we evaluate the applications from both rounds of early decision in the same way; there is no difference between applying ED I or ED II. Early Decision notification is on a rolling basis. For Early Decision I, decisions will be released beginning the third week in November through December 15, 2022. For Early Decision II, decisions will be released beginning the second week of January through February 28, 2023.

If you need additional time to gather your application materials or you are still deciding on your best fit school, you can apply for Regular Decision.

Regular Decision applicants may change their application to EDII by submitting the Early Decision Agreement Form through February 15. This option is designed for students, who decide Muhlenberg is their first choice after February 1, to be able to indicate their strong desire to enroll.
