UNITY — Responding to a multi-year spike in demand, Unity College is offering top students instant admissions decisions on Saturday, Sept. 19.

With the second Instant Admissions Day in two years, college officials said they hope to capitalize on increased interest in America’s Environmental College while making the admissions process easier for students who make Unity their top choice, according to a news release from the college.

“In 2015, we will again provide a chance for highly qualified students, both transfer and first-year applicants, the chance to complete the entire decision process in just one day,” Unity College Admission Director Joe Saltalamachia said in the release. “It makes things easier and more stress-free for the applicant if he or she knows they will have a place at Unity prior to the regular decision cycle.”

If accepted, students receive a printed letter of acceptance and packet containing other accepted student information. Students will receive a Unity College T-shirt, and eligible students will be offered merit scholarships.

Students have a chance to meet with faculty, administrators, and current students, as well as learn more about academic programs and campus life similar to Unity’s traditional open houses, with students and families enjoying a tour of campus, lunch and an Experience Your Major opportunity.

In the past, Instant Admissions Day applicants have come from across New England and as far away as Bloomsburg, Pa. Last year, 42 students were accepted at Instant Admissions Day. This year, students from Arkansas, California, Ohio, and Kentucky are signed up and may attend.

The event is Saturday, Sept. 19, 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Instant admissions applicants must apply online by midnight Wednesday, Sept. 16. Other requirements apply.
