Withdrawing apps

Hi there,

My S was accepted to his ED school. We are working on withdrawing the other EA apps he had submitted. He had one acceptance (to state flagship) and has not heard from the others. Do you just send an email to the admissions office? He did not visit or connect with a particular rep at the EA schools. He did send an email by linking through Naviance, but there is no "sent" folder that I can see so we wouldn't have a record of having withdrawn. I just want to make sure he abides by the ED rules and has no wrinkles in this process. Thanks!

    Yes, just send an EMail to each and keep a record of it (put them in a subdirectory or folder).

    Unless there is an option in the applicant portal, or a "contact us" button there, then sending an email is fine.

    Yes, check the school’s applicant portal, if available. I seem to recall there’s a menu/function/button to withdraw an application on most of the ones I’ve used.

    Email would be the backup, if not.

    Not sure this should just be through Naviance. It would get into the file, but possibly not get adcom attention until they've already put time into the review. Unlike other updates, this is a "halt" request.

    Good point. I also didn't like that in Naviance there seemed to be no record of withdrawing. He sent the emails today. Some of those were so hard to send! But you can only go to one college, at a time, anyway!
