    • Accept an unconditional offer to tell a university you will be attending there, meaning you decline any other offers you have.

    Choose an insurance acceptance if you made a firm acceptance on a conditional offer. You are entitled to make 1 insurance acceptance, but you are not required to do so.
    • Picking the insurance acceptance option for one of the other schools that made you an offer will give you a back-up option in the event that you don't meet the required conditions for a conditional offer you accepted.
