You have been selected to be a member of the Vassar College Class of 2016 under our Early Decision program. On behalf of the Vassar community, I extend to you our most enthusiastic congratulations.
As you know, Vassar is a community that is enriched by the strengths of each member. We look forward to your participation in, and your contribution to, our academic and extracurricular endeavors. We believe you, in turn, will find support at Vassar for your intellectual and personal development during this important period in your life. Of course, your admission is contingent on finishing your senior year with a strong academic and personal record.
Please return the Candidate’s Reply Card, along with the $500.00 non-refundable deposit to reserve your place in the class, as soon as possible, but no later than February 20, 2012. In compliance with the terms of the Early Decision agreement, please withdraw any other college applications you have submitted.
Financial aid awards will be mailed from the Office of Financial Aid within about a week to all those who have completed the financial aid process. You can expect information about housing options and required medical forms in May, and information about course registration and freshman orientation in July. In the meantime, of course, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
I hope you will celebrate your admission to Vassar College in grand style. Welcome!
David M. Borus
Dean of Admission and Financial Aid
