The American Historical Association Council reaffirms the importance of the Council of Graduate Schools’ resolution regarding deadlines for accepting offers of admission to graduate programs, which state that students are under no obligation to respond to offers of admission and financial support prior to April 15, and that imposing earlier deadlines for the acceptance of such offers violates the Council’s and the Association’s principles.
