Freshmen Admissions

Decision Policy and Deadlines


Freshman Decision Policy

We subscribe to a rolling admissions policy; however, applications received after the March 1 priority filing date will be considered on a space-available basis. The Office of University Admissions makes every effort to notify candidates of their admission decision approximately three weeks after receiving a completed application. We also subscribe to an Early Action admissions program.

Candidate Reply Date

We subscribe to the May 1 candidate reply date for freshmen. This procedure has been established to provide ample time for students to reach a decision on their college choices. On this date, accepted students should notify the University of their intent with regard to enrollment. Commitments received after this date will be considered on a space-available basis for enrollment and housing.
