What is the difference between Early Decision and Early Action?

Early Decision is a binding agreement between the family and the college that states the student will enroll at that college if he/she is accepted. Students apply early (usually November 1) and hear back from the colleges on their decision in early to mid-December. Students can only apply to one school via the Early Decision process. Early Action is when a student applies under an early deadline and hears back from the college early, but it is not a binding contract. Students accepted under Early Action are free to still enroll at a different college. Students can apply to multiple schools via the Early Action process.
