First-year applicants have three application options: Early Decision 1, Early Decision 2, and Regular Decision.
Early Decision is an option for students who strongly feel that Kenyon is their first choice. Students commit to attend the College if offered admission through either round of Early Decision. They also guarantee that they have filed no other Early Decision applications and that they must withdraw any regular applications if admitted to Kenyon. Early Decision 1 applicants will be notified of their admission decision in early December and Early Decision 2 applicants will be notified in early February.
Regular Decision is the option that the vast majority of students apply under. Students can submit Regular Decision applications to as many schools as they wish. Students will be notified of their Regular Decision admission decision in late March.
The deadlines for each application option are: 三种申请选择的截止日期如下

The Kenyon Net Price Calculatoris a tool that can help you estimate the amount of need-based financial aid for which you would qualify as well as an estimate of your family’s contribution.
Need-based aid is renewable for eight-semesters of full-time attendance at Kenyon. Students need to reapply for need-based aid each year and maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA.
Merit scholarships are awarded to approximately the top 15% of admitted students. They range in value from $15,000 to full-tuition and are renewable for eight-semesters of full-time attendance (students need to maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA).
Kenyon also offers the Newman’s Own Foundation Scholarships. These are awarded to students who are socioeconomically disadvantaged, with priority given to those from underrepresented backgrounds. These scholarships eliminate the loan portion of the financial aid package.
肯尼恩学院也提供另一种奖学金 – 纽曼基金会奖学金。这项奖学金提供给经济上困难的学生，并优先提供给来自非典型背景的学生。这些奖学金将减少大学助学金贷款的比重，以此减少优秀学生的经济负担。
For more information about merit scholarships, visit the academic scholarships webpage. You can also email the Office of Admissions with any other questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).

The Chinese translator Amelia Li is an international student at Kenyon. She is a senior double major in Sociology and Economics. Born and raised in Beijing, the capital of China, Amelia had never come to the United States until coming to Kenyon in 2011. She first learned about Kenyon during her junior year in high school, when Kenyon’s admission representative Bev Morse visited Beijing on a Liberal Arts College Tour. Bev convinced Amelia that Kenyon would be perfect for her, and therefore she filed her application to Kenyon in Early Decision. As she really enjoys her life at Kenyon, Amelia has been working for the Office of Admissions for three years, talking to prospective students and parents from China about her experience as a Kenyon student. If you have any question about the application process or student life as an international student, please do not hesitate to contact Amelia at email@example.com.
