Early_Decision_DeadlineHere’s When Students Can Expect to Receive Regular Admission Decisions in 2018

Click here for the regular decision notification dates for the class of 2023!

As we draw closer to spring, colleges and universities across the country are working hard to get through hundreds of thousands of college applications to the class of 2022 in order to deliver regular decisions by the end of March.

Harvard University has already signaled that its regular decision release date for the class of 2022 will be March 28, 2018, and since the Ivy Leagues tend to release on the same day, we anticipate decisions from the other seven Ivies then as well (unless otherwise noted.) To see admission decision release dates from last year click here.

The class of 2022 admissions cycle was another record-setting one, with some of the country’s top institutions, including Harvard University, NYU, Brown University, and Yale University, among others, reporting record-high application numbers.

Most colleges aim to have regular admission decisions ready by March 31 or April 1, but many choose to release decisions once they’re ready, which can sometimes be a week or two before the standard decision release date.

Here are regular decision notification dates for the class of 2022.

Many of these dates are general, so expect these dates to change as we draw closer to mid-March. It is also possible for colleges to post a release date only to move it up or postpone to a later date, so these dates are subject to change.

Be sure to check back regularly for updated date and times – especially for those labeled “TBD” or those with a general timeframe (mid/late March, early April, etc.)
