Hi Lindsay, if your question is about applying twice to the same college during the same application year, then I would say no. Typically, if you don't get admitted during Early Decision, the school is essentially suggesting that you wouldn't be admitted during the Regular Decision period either. If they are unsure or on the fence about your admission decision, they will automatically defer you to the regular round and you will be notified pretty quickly. This is very typical practice with most colleges I've worked with in the past. Early Decision is typically a great option if you are serious about the school but keep in mind the application should not rushed just for the sake of submitting early.

If your question is about applying in different application intake years, then yes you can absolutely apply again and again. In this case you would want to provide them an update on what has changed (improved grades, test scores, taking on new leadership roles, extracurricular, etc.) compared to your last application. Most applications will have an optional essay or small section where you can comment on this specific matter.

Yes, you can apply to a college as many times as you would like. The downside to applying multiple times though is that every time you apply you will have to pay the application fee which can range anywhere from $50-$150, depending on what school you are applying for. However, this does not bother some people so it is not a big deal to them.

Yes you can apply to a college multiple times! You can also try other avenues such as deferred enrollment, part-time student or seek to update your existing application with new information (grades, standardized test scores). I suggest reaching out to the school directly to get their input on the application process. Good luck!
