Missed the application deadline?
Late applications are being accepted on a rolling basis through July 1, 2024. 

First-year student application deadlines

COA has four application rounds—make sure you are aware of the deadline for the application round of your choice, along with the dates you can expect to hear from us regarding admission decisions.

Note: We have extended our application deadline to support first-year students who were hoping to attend Northland College in 2024. If you already applied or planned to apply to Northland, COA will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis until July 1. We encourage you to apply soon as enrollment space is limited. Current Northland College students can apply to transfer to COA through a simplified process under our transfer agreement.

Transfer application deadlines

Transfer applicants may also apply Early Decision using the first-year deadlines. Additionally, first-year students may apply for winter or spring term admission, using the transfer application deadlines. International students are encouraged to apply for fall admission. Students applying for winter or spring term admission may not defer to future terms. Please contact our office for more information.
