I will be applying to college during the end of the 2021 that is I will be starting my college in 2022.

I want to know everything about early decision and regular and when will spring session start and fall session will start.

I want to apply early so which session I will be in spring or fall?

Spring and fall semesters vary by college. Fall semester basically means when the school will get back from summer break. Spring starts when winter break ends. If you're applying early decision/ action, then you will start in the fall. Colleges typically post when their applications are due on their websites, so I'd recommend looking there first.

The early decision basically means that you'll get the results for admission earlier than if you'd apply by the regular deadline. Early action is different. If you get accepted to a school with Early Action, YOU HAVE TO ATTEND. That's why it's recommended you hold that spot for your dream school because it has been shown your admission chances will double if you apply that way.

@rayne.rose thank you
Early decision is the legally binding one!! Please don't get those two confused, early ACTION is when the results come back to you sooner. I do think that ED sounds like it should be non-binding and EA should be, it's the OTHER way around. ED is binding, EA is not!! Here's a website that explains it in more detail:
