Hurricane Sandy: Early Action Deadline Extension

I hope all of you in the path of Hurricane Sandy are doing okay… know that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you who are in the areas that were hit hard by the storm.

With the hurricane hitting the East Coast just a few days before November 1, Providence College has extended its Early Action deadline for students in affected areas to Friday, November 9 (updated 11/2). Here is the official release from the Office of Admission, which was also sent via e-mail to high school seniors in our inquiry pool:

Due to Hurricane Sandy and its impact on the East Coast, Providence College has extended its Early Action application deadline for students in areas affected by the storm until Friday, November 9, 2012.  All applications and supplements will be considered timely and receive full consideration if received by this date. Additionally, this extension is granted to all affected and no further permission is needed from the Office of Admission or Providence College.

If you are in an area that was impacted by the storm, please take the extra time with your application if needed, and know that you will not be at any disadvantage in the admission process if you submit your application by Friday, November 9. Should you have any questions about the deadline extension, please don’t hesitate to call the Office of Admission at (401) 865-2535 or (800) 721-6444 to speak with a member of the counseling staff. (Please note that campus is closed today, October 30, due to the storm… but we anticipate that the office will be open tomorrow and for the rest of the week!).

Stay safe!


  1. Please note – an update to the Early Action Extension:

    With the continued impact of Hurricane Sandy on a large portion of the country, we understand that for many students, submitting an application may be impossible at this time. Therefore, Providence College has further extended its Early Action application deadline to Friday, November 9 for students in areas affected by the storm.
