Decision Day is around the corner! So what is it? Decision Day is May 1, 2017 and it’s when high school seniors commit to the college they are going to attend in the fall. To celebrate, deposit before May 1 and save $100 on the $175 enrollment deposit.

In addition, Olivet College is hosting a contest to honor the students who have chosen to be Comets. Submit a short video explaining why you chose Olivet and share it on social media with #OC2021. You could be one of three to win a $100 bookstore voucher!

Plus, be one of the first 50 deposited students to stop by the Dole Hall Welcome Center and Admissions Office on Decision Day to receive a free OC yard sign.
