"Before QuestBridge, I was considering colleges close to home that I could afford based on local scholarships and federal aid. However, after hearing of QuestBridge, I started to dream bigger, coming to understand that acceptance to amazing colleges was not only within my grasp, but financially feasible as well."
|Regular Decision Requirements|
You may apply to our partner colleges through the Regular Decision process whether or not you are a National College Match finalist, but please note that there are different requirements if you are a finalist or non-finalist.
You must complete two steps in order to apply to a partner college via the QuestBridge Regular Decision process:
Important: if you ranked a college and are applying to that college for Regular Decision, you must review their College Match Requirements to confirm that you completed your application. You may need to submit additional materials even if you already ranked the college for the College Match process.
Automatic Regular Decision Consideration: Please note that finalists who have ranked and submitted all the required application materials to the following colleges during the College Match process and did not match with a binding college will automatically be considered for admission at: Columbia University, Princeton University, Stanford University, Tufts University, University of Chicago, University of Notre Dame, University of Pennsylvania, University of Southern California, Yale University, and Vassar College. In some cases, you will need to submit a mid-year school report or other additional materials. Check each school's list of Regular Decision requirements to ensure you have submitted all required materials. If you do not want to be considered for admission to these colleges, you will need to contact the appropriate admissions offices to withdraw your application. If you have been admitted to a school (either a QuestBridge partner or a non-partner school) through a binding decision program, you must contact the appropriate admissions offices to withdraw your application.
The Regular Decision Requirements are listed below for each of our 35 partner colleges. Again, please note that there may be different requirements for finalists versus non-finalists.
