Hamilton said he expects the extended deadline will only affect a few applicants. Most prospective students who intended to apply have already done so, he said. Extending the deadline allows students in the Northeast to submit their applications late rather than choosing another school.

“We thought there were a whole host of good reasons to go ahead and extend the deadline to Nov. 30,” he said.

Erin Smith, Oklahoma State University's assistant director for undergraduate admissions, said OSU doesn't have a specific deadline. The university accepts applications on a rolling basis, she said, meaning applicants wouldn't be affected by a strict cutoff date.
